Strawberry Watermelon

[Selected from a Fla. heirloom by Walt Childs, introduced by SESE 1989.] An excellent garden variety watermelon with strawberry-red flesh which ripens to within 1/2” of the rind. The texture is delicate and the sweet flavor is outstanding and distinctive, one the best we offer. The melons are long (8” x 20”), dark green, with darker green stripes. Fruits have fewer seeds and range between 15-25 lbs. Disease resistance is very good. 85 days.

Packet: 1-3 g (20-60 seeds, average 39 seeds).

Good to start from seed in these months:

North Florida: March-April, July-August

Central Florida: January-March, August

South Florida: January-March, August-September
