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.

Almost extinct wonder why

What are the pros? Don't know

What are the cons? Bad pic, or bad description!

Review:

I think I may know why this melon is almost extinct, or at least why no one seems to have bought the seeds from Baker Creek, grown it & reviewed it. Why do you describe the melon as "tasty,crisp red flesh" when your picture shows a pink & white sort of grainy looking melon pale-red at best? And the best inducement you can give for this melon is "tasty"? No wonder no one has reviewed it,and it is almost extinct! Is your picture what the melon always looks like? If so, you need to change the description. And if it isn't that sweet or delicious, maybe it should be extinct! I believe in genetic preservation but not if the melon is not worth preserving! I have never grown this melon & your picture & description do not entice me to do so. If it sounded and/or looked, like a Melon worth preserving I would have been one of the 1st to buy the seed to help preserve this melon. I am not being critical for the sake of being critical, I hope this is helpful. I love Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds!!
