80 days. Outstanding ice-box-type watermelon that we received from the former Soviet Union. Crisp, pink-to-red flesh is surrounded by dark green rind bearing occasional white markings. Fruits average around 8-10 lbs and are very sweet for a small-fruited variety. Productive and sturdy plants in our trial; good performance in a hot dry summer that stopped many others. We believe we are the only North American source for this variety.
