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.

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.

Review:

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

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.

Review:

These were not my favorite watermelon but they were so fun. They were the size of a grapefruit with red flesh and yellow skin. They looked so exotic, I just loved them. SIngle-serving watermelons. Very enjoyable.

Review:

first year seeds from Baker's..very fast grower, lots of seeds, lots of juice, not very sweet. I was raised on same kinds growing up so seeds and mild flavor not an issue for me. Not sweet like store hybrids but very refreshing when cold. One melon is good for 2 people. One vine produced 5 melons and I cut vines at ends. Enough seeds in one melon to plant large patch again which i hopefully plan to do for ourselves and share with chickens..they love all kinds of melons..Was pleased with the trial run.
