85 days. This watermelon produces 20-lb fruit that have a light pea-green rind that is resistant to sun burning. It is also one of the most drought-resistant varieties of watermelon known. It has sweet, yellow flesh and is very popular in the watermelon-growing areas of Arkansas. Good for storage.

Robust and easy to grow strong vine in bad soil, vine doesn't wilt in 115 degree heat with full sun. Very happy with this variety--this is what I buy heirlooms for! So crisp and strong shell and sweet! Nice orange.

Review:

We tried 2 varieties of watermelon this year - The Ali Baba and the Desert King. Both were good, although the Ali Baba was sweeter. The Desert King produced fair, but not as heavily as the Ali Baba. Friends thought there was a very slight tangy flavor such as you might find in guava. The novelty of a yellow watermelon made it popular among our friends.

I'm sitting here eating a bowl of the Desert King Watermelon. This is a fantastic growing and eating melon, this is our 3rd of the season and we've got a few more that will be ready soon. I'm in the Dallas area and this grows and tastes very well. I'll be growing it again.

Review:

Planted 5 vines, picked 22 melons so far, the vines are still ladened with more little ones. I would probably have more but the cyotes are eating some of them. Southern Mississippi is in the middle of an extreme drought, and I can't water them. But they don't seem to care. I will grow these from now on.
