(Citrullus lanatus) This classic watermelon variety has maintained its popularity for decades and for good reason. Healthy vines produce an abundance of watermelons usually ranging from 20-25 pounds. Melons have a classic green striped rind with a medium red center. Flesh is crisp, juicy and bursting with sweet flavor. Very reliable variety. 85 days to harvest. 25 seeds per packet.
CULTURE: Direct sow seeds outdoors 2 weeks after last frost, once soil temps have reached 70 degrees. Sow 3-5 seeds per hill with 3 to 4 feet between hills and to 8 feet between rows. Under ideal conditions germination will occur in 5-8 days. Watermelons are ready to harvest when the tendril nearest the melon has dried and the belly of the melon has turned yellow.
I bought organic watermelon seeds and they already grown now .
