What are the pros? Carefree plant
What are the cons? More seeds than flesh
I grew this wm for the first time this year. Zone 5, direct seeded in late May, into holes in a tarp (to control weeds and retain heat and moisture) and ate the first melon middle of August. Very tasty and sweet, good size for a personal-type watermelon. My only complaint is there are SO many seeds, more seeds than flesh seemingly! Hundreds of them. Easily twice as many as Sugar Baby which I also grew. I like seed spitting as much as they next guy, but this was a bit ridiculous. But Blacktail Mountain is earlier and slightly sweeter.
