Long An watermelons have to be grown on nutritious soil, which allows easy dehydration. Watermelon should be under the sun, and the ground must be softened before seeding. The seeds require some hours for dehydrating and soaking in warm water for the best germination. For the best development of the fruits, the farmers need to regularly do the watering, fertilizing and also give them a frame to grow. After about 60 to 70 days, watermelons would be harvested. They must pass the quality standards to be the inputs for our products: low pesticide usages, high sweetness, good appearance, strong stems, medium weight, and light red intestine. These fruits are delivered to our factory in air-free styrofoam boxes, which must resist shock while also ensuring maximum aeration.
