85-90 days. This heirloom was bred in Montrose, Iowa in 1950 by "Chris" Christenson and the "Cross" was Hawksbury crossed with Dixie Queen. 15-20 lb. fruit have green striped rind and tasty, crisp red flesh. This variety is almost extinct.

What are the pros? taste!

What are the cons? Uncle Chris gone

Review:

Chris Christensen of Chris Cross was my great uncle who always had me eating his melons while growing up. They were the best tasting melons I have ever eaten! And I ate lots of melons growing up in the Midwest with summers in Montrose, Iowa

What are the pros? Good flavor, size, fruit set.

What are the cons? Thin rind

Review:

First ripe watermelon. Sweet, corse flesh. High fruit set. Very large vine. No sun burning. Shows Furusium wilt resistance compared to the other varieties. The best trait is it is doing great in the heat, better than Dessert King! The rind is thin but tough. Just a all around great variety. Will grow again.
