Believe it or not, you can grow melon in a container. Don’t let the sweet summer fruit fool you! It’s best to choose a dwarf variety — like a “bush sugar baby” watermelon — for smaller spaces, like apartments or condos.
Plant up to two plants in a 5-gallon container (at minimum) and allow the vines to spill over the sides, supporting the melon if necessary. And be sure to keep that water and fertilizer coming.
