70 days. A beautiful miniature watermelon that weighs around 3 lbs. It's easy to tell when they are ripe, as the rind turns a lovely golden yellow when ready for harvest, a very beautiful contrast with the salmon-pink colored flesh. The taste is sweet and refreshing. Very early, matures in just 70 days. Developed by the late Dr. Elwyn Meader, UNH in 1959. Unique.

Review:

Watermelons are impossible to grow in Minnesota . This is the first watermelon we have grown that has ripened before the frost. Out of three vines we got three small watermelons smaller than a softball. They were easy to tell when they were ripe because the rind turned all yellow. I allowed one of the watermelons to overripen and it was still very bland. All three were Bland with a ton of seeds. As a seed saver I appreciate the extra seeds but the flavor just wasn't there.

Review:

I planted these in the late Spring/early Summer in Central Texas, I did water it well and it grew quickly. Then I watered less since I did not want to run the well dry, and it was hor and dry. They put on melons, so I decided to try to at least give them enough water to keep them alive. They were ripe when the color had been completely yellow for about 4-5 days. (I did let a couple get too ripe and split) I also raise hogs so they get the split ones. These had good Watermelon flavor, but were hardy sweet at all. We tried 6 or 7 of them and I ate one just for spite, lol. I will grow them again, but just for the animals to enjoy. They were the first melons we had by nearly a month.

Review:

small watermelons loaded with big seeds, useless, can't even make juice as the fruit is as bland as bland can be-throw away your seeds and doN't waste your time. I gave 50 plus fruits to the coyotes in the desert--they probably won't eat it--too many seeds and too bland! easy to grow-good for NOTHING!

Review:

I grew three plants and only got four fruit. Like others have said, the flavor is very, very mild. There are lots of seeds, which is good for saving, but annoying while eating. I wasn't impressed and will definitely try something else next year.

Review:

I grow various types of melons every year and thought I'd try these. We live in southern Mississippi and melons generally do very well here except this one. The vines were very slow to grow and just when they started blooming, the vines died. I had given my neighbor some seeds and his vines did the same. One vine survived and produced 1 melon that quickly rotted.
