What are the pros? Taste, Prolific, Thin Rind
What are the cons? Lots of seeds
Grew this watermelon for the first time this year and it performed great! First watermelon to mature, direct seeded in May, had my first melon at the end of July. Up to 7 watermelons produced per 1 plant! Just the right size to serve a large family in a single serving, or a small family in 2 servings. Mine were between 2.5 - 4.5 lbs each. The light color of the rind prevents sunburn and the thin skin helps to tell when it is ripe as the yellow of the flesh starts to show through the skin on the bottom of the melon and the whole skin lightens in color. The taste is great, the best yellow watermelon I have tasted. Super juicy and the rind is so thin and sweet you can eat right up to the edge, or even crunch the whole rind if you want to. The only down side is there are quite a few seeds, however, this doesn't bother me as I enjoy seed-spitting as part of a good watermelon experience. Plus, many seeds means many volunteer melons in my cold compost pile next spring! ;) Will grow it again!
