80 days. Very unique spotted rind, with very crisp, sweet red flesh that bursts with rich, old-time watermelon flavor! One of the best melons I’ve tried in the last few years. Truly a winner! It used to be grown commercially, and was offered by several seed companies in the 1960s, but has since become nearly extinct. A great variety for home and market gardeners, as it produces 15-to 20 lb fruit that keeps well.

Have plenty of space for this variety - the vines usually cover my driveway which I don’t mind most of the time.

What are the pros? Super sweet

What are the cons? Not many fruit

Review:

Didn't get many fruit although could be the fault of the location it was planted. The fruits we did get was the sweetest melon we've ever had! Even a tiny 6" melon had the full flavor and sweetness of the larger one. Very nice texture and flavor, going to grow again in better location

Review:

For the past couple years every watermelon I've planted hasn't been too great. This year I wasn't going to plant any but I saw these seeds at the Spring Planting Festival and decided to give it another try sure glad I did! These turned out great and the flavor is sweet and delicious. I will definitely be growing more watermelons now!

What are the pros? Produced fruit, texture, flava

What are the cons? Small

Review:

I live in zone 4, Minnesota, so was just thrilled to have grown and harvested a watermelon. The single plant I grew produced 2 melons that are about 2/3 the size of a standard store cantaloupe. I never watered the plant, it had part sun due to corn blocking the light, and still did decent. The flesh is crisp and moderately sweet. It is very seedy but this tends to keep my kids busy so I'm not complaining. I will be saving seeds and growing again.
