80 days. Amazing deep, tangerine-orange fleshed fruit are sugar sweet! Perhaps the most perfectly flavored watermelon we have tried! In 2008, Mike Kiessel, watermelon expert of Leelanau County, Michigan, decided to cross the Orangeglo watermelon with a Crimson Sweet. After years of selecting and perfecting, the Leelanau Sweetglo has completely won our hearts and triumphed at our annual tasting trials! A new favorite orange-fleshed variety that matures early and is excellent for northern growing.
