What are the pros? Grows in short season location

What are the cons? None

Review:

We grew the Crimson Sweet and the Sweet Dakota Rose watermelons this year. Both were amazing in that they grew fast enough to produce a ripe melon during our short growing season. If you are looking for a watermelon for zone 7a (approx 148 day frost free growing season), this one is for you.

What are the pros? Consistent good flavor

What are the cons? Nitrogen sensitive

Review:

Most consistent good flavor of the 30 or so varieties I have tried. Little slow to germinate on average, doesn't like too much nitrogen fertilizer. I start indoors, very short season in the mountains of N. CA. Average 15 lbs, but always sweet, big or small. If I could grow only one watermelon, Crimson Sweet would be the one.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, rich flavor

What are the cons? None

Review:

Most reliable of the many types of watermelons I have grown. Ali baba was more productive but maybe not quite as good. I will always grow a plant or two as long as I grow watermelons.l

What are the pros? Taste, unbeatable crunch

What are the cons? -

Review:

This is the BEST watermelon you can grow. Very easy to grow, can tolerate some California drought. The fruit is very large, super sweet, with the best taste profile I have ever tasted (and I grow usually 10 new varieties every year). This used to be the most popular watermelon in US, but was discontinued because people wanted seedless watermelons. I grow this variety every year and save my own seeds. It is a must for every gardener

What are the pros? Does well when watered often.

What are the cons? No dislikes.

Review:

I am very impressed with the Crimson Sweet. It has been a few years since I grew watermelons and the first variety was a Black Diamond. It did good but the raccoons found them and ruined them. This year no raccoons, thankfully. The first two melons were 26 and 20 pounders. Very sweet. I grow organically so I enjoyed this. I only planted a couple spots to test my ability to grow them. They did very well. I used a couple to make Watermelon Jam for the farmers market. It was delicious too. Everything I get from Baker Creek is the best.
