(Citrullus lanatus) The perfect watermelon for short-season climates. Healthy plants produce unique, 3lb melons with golden yellow rinds and flavorful salmon pink flesh. A great variety for first-time watermelon growers as melons have a built-in ripeness indicator—the rinds turn yellow when ready! 70 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. Watermelons are ready to harvest when the tendril nearest the melon has dried and the belly of the melon has turned yellow.
