Best Watermelon Ive Ever Had

What are the pros? Best flavor, very early

What are the cons? None

Review:

I originally tried this melon because I get some cold nights (not unusual for us to dip into the high 40s a number of times in the summer), and tend to do better with "cool climate" watermelons. It has a unique flavor that is much more complex than other watermelons, and is now the standard by which I measure all watermelons. And anyone I've ever shared it with has also been totally amazed. I have now grown it for three years, and it is always the first choice in watermelons. It produced wonderful fruit even during the cool summer we had in 2011. It is also one of the earliest watermelons. In addition, many people are surprised to see a white-fleshed watermelon. ***Highly*** recommended.

Review:

This little melon exceeded my expectations. I didn't expect much as we are in zone 3 and melons never have enough time to ripen. This one was great! 2-3 melons per vine about 6in diameter on average. Wonderful fresh watermelon flavor and so sweet it was like they were dipped in sugar; nice crisp texture with none of the mealiness of some watermelons. They were sooo juicy we had to eat them outside or over the sink! Do have a tendency to split when ripe, so have to keep a close eye on them when ripening. Highly recommended!

Review:

The vines grew fine last year in Northeast Ohio, but it was a very wet spring and summer, and the melons all split before ripening. Blacktail Mountain and Orangeglo easily outperformed them and did not split at all. I will not be growing these again.

Review:

Great Watermelon! Very Hardy---Drought tolerant, and survived early season bug onslaught to produce 2 flushes of sweet, juicy melons in Colorado at 6100 ft in elevation. Didn't take up a ton of space A favorite!
