70 days. One of the earliest watermelons we know of, superb for the north, but it also grows well in heat and drought. The flesh is red and deliciously sweet. Fruit have a dark rind and weigh 8-12 lbs. each. This excellent variety was developed by our friend Glenn Drowns, owner of the Sand Hill Preservation Center in Iowa. A favorite of many gardeners across the USA. One of the best we have ever tried!

The earliest of my melons. This variety was ready in 67 days. Great tasting, very sweet. An attractive melon. Small for the watermelon world, about 8-9 lbs each.

What are the pros? Super easy to grow even here!

What are the cons? None

Review:

Been looking for a watermelon for awhile that would grow here. Not only does this one grow it thrives. Just ate the first one today and it surpassed my expectations for any watermelon. Some have stated the amount of seeds as a con but I did not see this. May be some are used to seedless. More melon than expected when I cut it open. Sweet, crisp and refreshing with thinner rind than most. If you live in a colder shorter growing season or not this is a must try.

What are the pros? awesome taste, easy to grow

What are the cons? lots of seeds

Review:

Just harvested our first melon yesterday and it was great. We have several more growing. We had a lot of rain after sowing seeds, so we really didn't have to water a lot, but it's been getting hot (100 f) here and the vines and fruit are holding up really well.

Review:

I grew Blacktail Mountain this year for the first time and I was impressed. It grew numerous large round black, great tasting melons. I did nothing but plant it and water it, and it grew like crazy. I plan on growing it every year now.

Review:

I long sought an easy growing early melon. For years I have struggled with the detestable sugar baby and had it proven time and again sugar baby is a plant looking for a place to die and when the rare survivor does live it puts all it's energy into one basket or melon in this case. Like most other early whatevers one often decides you might well just wait for the real deal melons after tasting the early facsimiles. Then came BLACKTAIL MOUNTAIN! I'll describe it as I would a main cropper because in all areas save waiting time and size this cultivar is every bit the equal of the best of the main season melons. This vine doesn't know it's an early season stand in. It grows just as strong and vigorous, maybe even quicker. It loads up with fruit and finishes them off nicely to proper size and shape without any tapered ends. And then there's the taste test. OMG, GOOD! This isn't a it'll do early, she's as good or better than most. However, the rind is thin and somewhat fragile if shipping.
