80-90 days—One of the best-tasting and most reliable newer open-pollinated watermelon varieties! Striped fruits are nearly round and weigh in at 8-15 lbs. Superior flavor, sunburn resistant, and has very few seeds. Thin, firm rind makes it a good market type and an excellent keeper! Developed decades ago by North Dakota farmer David Podoll, who stabilized a cross between Early Canada and Black Diamond. Very well adapted to short, cool seasons.

What are the pros? Taste is amazing

What are the cons? took longer than 80-90 days

Review:

Just picked our first Dakota Rose watermelon. It was worth the wait. It took longer than the 80-90 days but worth the wait. Started the seeds at the end of May and just picked a ripe one in the middle of Sept-only because we haven't had any early frosts have they continued to ripe. We tried to pick one at the beginning of Sept, but it was very unripe. Planted 4 only 2 made it -but took over half the garden. There about 11 melons starting, but ended up with 4 on one plant and the other had 7. Best tasting watermelons around. We despise store bought-who said consumers want seedless variety with very little taste of watermelons? We love love love our heirloom garden produce from Bakers creek! We had good rain in the spring at least 1" each week-I know watermelon don't like a lot of water as seedlings. And a good warm summer since then. Thought it was mostly an ideal watermelon season, so I don't know why it took longer than 120 days to ripen.
