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!

What are the pros? sweet, juicy and easy to grow.

What are the cons? A bit seedy for a small melon.

Review:

This is the first melon I've ever grown and 3 out of 4 seeds germinated. I planted them a bit too close together and I only ended up with 4 melons but they were very good. I'm wondering if I should have fed the soil with some sort of nutrient. I will grow them again next year after I do a bit of research.

Review:

First time I have ever grown watermelon, seeing as I am in Montana watermelon doesn't grow here. I started them inside and mid June I planted outside. We are at the first of August and I have bunches of them on the vine doing great! Knowing nothing about watermelon harvesting I picked one and it was not ripe, at all. But it still tastes pretty good! Once I harvest ripe ones I will write another review!

Review:

This was my first time growing watermelon. This melon was easy to grow, My very first melon weighed 25.9 pounds. It was a beautiful looking watermelon and tasted excellent. The seed information said it would get to 8 to 12 pounds, well let me tell you it far out weighed that. My wife and I are in our mid sixties and wanted a smaller melon for us to handle, so much for that idea. I would recommend this melon to any body that wants to try growing watermelon.

Review:

This was my first time growing watermelons and I thought I'd try this one first. I gave the seeds a head start indoors in a manure compost pot a few weeks before last frost. At that time I set up their planting spot and covered it with mulch, then clear plastic to warm the soil. Come planting time (end of April) i kept the transplants covered in a home made tiny greenhouse, uncovered during rain and very warm days. I removed the 18"x24" greenhouse about a month later when they outgrew it. Now I know nothing about proper watering or harvesting, but with minimal watering I got well over 10 melons between TWO plants! I am growing this along with a couple other heirloom varieties next year the same way and I hope for even better success with some more educating!

Review:

This watermelon was such a pleasant surprise. It is difficult to grow watermelon here in the NW where we are located, but we planted these seeds in our garden and received 5 beautiful melons! They were so sweet and full of flavor... will plant again next year for sure!
