Citrullus lanatus

The sweetest, best-tasting watermelon you could ever grow.

Sweet, fine-textured, medium-red flesh. The round, 12 lb., dark green skinned melons grow 8 in. across. GARDEN HINTS: For early fruiting and to overcome a short growing season, plants may be started indoors in peat pots. Water during hot, dry periods.
75 Days
  • Allow your melons to ripen on the vine. In general fruits are ripe when they smell aromatic and when stems start to crack and the fruit slips off easily with light pressure from your thumb.
  • Generally, fruits are ripe when they smell fruity.
  • Harvest cantaloupes when the fruits change from green to yellow or tan and they break away easily from the vine.
  • Harvest winter melons when they turn the appropriate color and their blossom ends are soft.
  • Honeydew melons are ripe when the skin turns to a creamy yellow color and the blossom end is slightly soft. To avoid damage cut the honeydew off the vine with sharp shears.
  • Watermelons are ready to harvest when their undersides turn from white to a creamy yellow. The tendrils closest to the fruit will also turn brown and dry up and the skin will become dull and hard at harvest time.
  • For best flavor eat at room temperature.
  • Melons may be stored in the refrigerator for a short time. They will lose their flavor and color if stored too long.
