Bacterial fruit blotch is a disease of watermelons. Since first detected in 1989, it's spread rapidly. Willhite Seed Company was one of the first to make information available to the public. For the best info on this disease, look on page 37 of Willhite's 2009 catalog. (I don't know how to find it on the website.)

 Both Willhite's website and catalog feature a planting guide with correct spacing, etc. for various crops.

Willhite offers a variety of seeds, but is an especially good source for southern peas(cowpeas, crowders) and watermelons. I don't know of a more economical source for cowpeas. (A 2oz packet is about $1.25 and most lbs are $3.60.) This is a friendly, professional, reliable company with low shipping fees. I've bought from them for years without a single complaint. Read the catalog carefully- packets  of things like squash  sometimes contain 100 seeds instead of 25 like other companies' packs. Remember this when comparing prices.  Oh, check out the cucumbers, too; they have some good deals on cukes, like 1/8 oz of Carolina Hybrid or Calypso Hybrid for $1.55. This contains much more than a seed rack pack.
