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:

I have three plants in a ten gallon felt pot, and they are going crazy even in 95-105 heat. I have them trellised on a tomato cage right now, and they are setting watermelons like crazy. My kids love to see them grow each day!

What are the pros? Fun watermelon for kids

What are the cons? not as sweet

Review:

My 4 year old son absolutely adores these melons. They are easy for him to pick and carry. He likes to spit seeds, so he doesn't mind that they have plenty of them! Although the taste wasn't as sweet as some varieties, it was still pleasant and enjoyable. The watermelons were the first to mature of the 3 varieties we tried and we found it's best to pick them with just a little green on the skin or they can be overripe and spoiled. The vines appear yellow and sickly, but keep growing tons of fruit! I realize yellow vines and leaves are just a trait of this variety. We did not use commercial fertilizer, we just added plenty of rotting hay and goat manure early in the spring. Important to keep up on weeds, as these plants don't compete well. I think they would do well on a trellis.

What are the cons? Bland, excessively seedy

Review:

A very novel melon, but the interest stops there, poor yields of small, bland, excessively seedy melons.

What are the cons? flavor was meh

Review:

I have small children so keep this in mind. The kids really enjoyed these melons, they were fast growing, changed color when ready, and had big old seed they could spit at each other. We had a brutally hot summer and these melons were bland with a slight amount of tartness. I didn't care of them however the kids really enjoyed them which is good since the vines, although kept in a small area, produced and produced and produced until the frost killed them back. If you have kiddos who enjoy gardening give these melons consideration.
