The SHORTEST season watermelon we've ever encountered!! Matures in less than 2 months from transplant. A true gem and a very rare variety. Beautiful moon and stars pattern exterior and pink interior; some fruits with yellow interior. The rind is very thin and actually edible! The fruits are long-lasting in the field but once picked do not store long. Fruits are sweet and delicious. Help us proliferate this wonderful variety!
Bred by Gerald Sprouse of Ooltewah, Tennessee in the 1970's. Grown by Groundwork in Paonia, CO. Original seeds obtained from Delectation of Tomatoes.
Planting Instructions: Start indoors 3-5 weeks before last spring frost and transplant outdoors after all danger of frost has passed and soil has warmed. Or sow directly in the ground in well-draining mounds or rows (3 seeds/mound with mounds spaced 5 feet apart, or seeds spaced 12" apart in rows). Do not overwater.
Seed Saving Instructions: Choose fully ripe, tasty fruits for seed saving. Dry seeds on a screen or cloth. Store seeds in a paper or mesh bag in a cool, dark and dry location.
