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!

Ample Watermelon, loves cool climates. Yet another great melon to eat before the big boys come in. Fast and early maturity. Cut one in half and you can make 2 children very happy.

What are the pros? none

What are the cons? very small plants

Review:

I dont know what is up with these seeds. The seeds germinated easily but the plants themselves are only a few inches tall. Very small and already trying to flower. I started two plants indoors and two I direct sowed outside. they are all tiny. I've never had trouble growing watermelons before. Maybe I should have stuck to the larger watermelon varieties.

What are the pros? Flavor, Matured in the North

What are the cons? Mice and deer like them, too

Review:

I've never grown a watermelon this far north but had amazing success with this variety. I started one indoors in my Aerogarden in April and moving to the greenhouse in May and then the garden in June. The vine was vigorous and produced many small fruits. Unfortunately, most were eaten by some uninvited visitor of the 4 legged variety. The two melons that did grow to maturity were out of this world! They were so packed with flavor and juice that the kids and I stood in the kitchen in amazement. Never in my life have I tasted a watermelon this good. I will be planting several more vines in 2014!
