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 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.

Review:

This watermelon was just beautiful. It is the picture perfect watermelon, inside and out. The flesh was bright red, and extended to within less than an inch of the rind. Everyone who saw it was so impressed with how it looked, and the great flavor. I only planted 1 or 2 plants, and I got 2 melons (none of my melon vines produced much, so probably my issue as it was my first year growing melons). I definitely picked them a bit late, because I was waiting for the underside to get yellow, and that never happened. Next time, I will pick them as soon as the tendril closest to the vine turns brown and dry. Even though they were a bit mealy by the time I picked them, they were still juicy and had great sweet flavor. I can't wait to try them again next year now that I know more about when to pick them.
