How much light do these [Crimson Sweet watermelon] plants need

They need full sun.

How many watermelons does each plant produce approx.

Usually 2-3 depending on the length of the growing season.

What temperature should you grow it at?

As warm as possible. Do not plant out until June 1 in Southern Ontario, Canada. If you start the seeds in March indoors you can gain enough warm growing time to get an extra melon or two. Mulching with a dark mulch helps keep the soil warm.
