It’s back..this long-time favourite will delight with its sweet orange flesh. Oblong shape. Weighing in at 7 kg (15 lb) size and greater! More than a novelty, this variety will compete with any watermelon on sweetness and taste.
How to Grow
9-10 seed/gram Very similar to cantaloupe and muskmelon. Seeds require 5-10 days at a soil temperature of 24 C (75 F) to germinate – any lower and germination will be inhibited. Sow 6-8 seeds per hill, 12 mm (1/2″) deep in hills spaced 1.8 – 2.4 m (6-8′) from each other. Thin to 3-4 plants per hill. Never let the plants lack for water.
