What are the pros? most conistent best tasting

What are the cons? none

Review:

I really want to like the quirky unusual melons like moon and stars and sugar baby ...but this traditional striped grocery store melon is just fine....It tastes as good or better than any watermelon I've ever had...especially home grown....and it is a good producer...most melons produce 3 or 4 melons per vine and that is good..I grew these on black plastic in a hot summer and had one at 35lbs..many at 30 and 23 lbs..sweet fresh and delicious. ..often at 4 or 5 per vine. I never imagined they would do so well in Ontario...way better than anything coming from Texas or Mexico by far !I'm sure they must force their melons with fertilizer because they have off flavours wspecially at the beginning of the season. These ones grown at home were the best watermelons I have ever tasted .

What are the pros? Everything

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

I gave my crimson plant minimal space and fertilizer. It outperformed everything. This is the top watermelon to grow and eat. Ask around, the crimson is king. 1- Small brittle seeds that can be eaten whole 2- Candy watermelon flavor 3- Super Crisp 4- Very sweet 5- Resilient What more can you ask for? This is the one you grow a lot of. Period. Give this baby some bone and blood meal once a month till the last month, a monthly tablespoon of potash (potassium), and a monthly pinch of urea. Cant go wrong. 15-20 pounders all day, got 8 total from one seed/plant. Crimson is King.

What are the pros? Grows in short season location

What are the cons? None

Review:

We grew the Crimson Sweet and the Sweet Dakota Rose watermelons this year. Both were amazing in that they grew fast enough to produce a ripe melon during our short growing season. If you are looking for a watermelon for zone 7a (approx 148 day frost free growing season), this one is for you.

What are the pros? Consistent good flavor

What are the cons? Nitrogen sensitive

Review:

Most consistent good flavor of the 30 or so varieties I have tried. Little slow to germinate on average, doesn't like too much nitrogen fertilizer. I start indoors, very short season in the mountains of N. CA. Average 15 lbs, but always sweet, big or small. If I could grow only one watermelon, Crimson Sweet would be the one.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, rich flavor

What are the cons? None

Review:

Most reliable of the many types of watermelons I have grown. Ali baba was more productive but maybe not quite as good. I will always grow a plant or two as long as I grow watermelons.l
