85 days. Flesh is a gorgeous strawberry pink, ripening to within a half-inch of the rind, and usually has very few seeds. Fine grained, distinctively flavored and super sweet; it is classed among the best-tasting by those who have tried it. The oblong, striped fruit reach 15-25 pounds. With moderate disease resistance, this variety deserves to be the star of your summer garden. Originally selected from a Florida heirloom by Walt Childs and introduced in 1989 by our good friends at Southern Exposure Seed Exchange. Outstanding!

What are the pros? Easy, prolific, delicious

Review:

I love this watermelon! I thought the picture looked pretty. I grew it out of curiosity. It germinates easily, grows well, seems to be disease resistant, too. Some of my other watermelon plants succumbed to fungus. I plant them 3 feet apart, but be warned, give them atleast 6 feet of room to the east. These can vine out 10 feet in my garden! I planted 4 different kinds of watermelons and this is the best. No diseases, sturdy, large, grows quickly. The bees love it. Every morning my melon patch is buzzing. Everytime one melon is ready to harvest, another melon starts to grow! They have 5 melons growing per plant regularly. This is my first time growing watermelons. So great for first timers! I used lots of horse manure, lots of water and full sun exposure. Loves it down south. The melons are crispy and pinkish red, very sweet and very attractive. I have gifted the extra melons and people love them. I'll be getting more seeds in the spring for another lovely year with these beauties.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, very sweet

What are the cons? lots of seeds

Review:

I started these seeds in a kiddie pool (May 18, 2019) and thinned to 4 plants with plenty of room to grow. The vines rooted down in the surrounding mulch, which I think is why it has done well. So well that my neighbor steals them. She has been caught, so hopefully the thievery has stopped. Out of 4 mature plants, I (and my neighbor) have harvested 6 so far with currently 7 at varying stages. I bought these seeds because it says it has low seed in the fruit, but I think there is a lot of seeds. The fruit is very sweet and we have enjoyed it very much with more to come!

What are the pros? Best tasting watermelon ever

What are the cons? Plants not very hardy

Review:

I started some indoors then moved to my garden in addition to planting seeds directly in the garden. All the ones I transplanted did well for about 2 weeks then died within a few days of each other. I moved 6, and all but 1 died. I planted another 6 seeds in the garden, and 2 of them came up. I ended up with 2 plants in the end that produced watermelons, and got 4 out of those 2 plants. Not great odds, but the watermelon was super juicy and delicious! I also grew Ali Baba this year and it was much more prolific and hardy, but not quite as tasty as the strawberry watermelon (though still delicious!).

What are the pros? Hardy and Syrupy Sweet

What are the cons? None!

Review:

This is my first year trialing this melon here in Zone 6b Kentucky----and I am impressed! While only moderately productive, the vines are disease-resistant and go into early production---especially for a watermelon of this size: I have had several in the range of 25 to 30 pounds. Best of all, they are ambrosia-sweet . . . down to the rind! The only melon, in my experience, that comes close is a dead ripe, perfect Crimson Sweet, and I think Strawberry is a bit better! And they're not overly seedy. Will grow these again next year---and if they perform even half as well, I will have found my favorite watermelon cultivar!

What are the pros? Taste is outstanding

What are the cons? Not alot of fruits on plants

Review:

Easy to grow, no issues bugs,molds etc. Taste is outstanding , had more seeds than i desire , but overall decent. Wish the plants grew more watermelons, as i ate these up quickly...guess ill have to wait til next year to plant more. Decent size as ill guess the weight to be about/at least 10 Lbs, possibly more. Get some of these, you wont be disappointed.
