WS-9704

Citrullus lanatus

One of our sweetest, most unique watermelons we have developed and perfected. Rinds range from being either solid to striped, but are always a dark green or near-black color that is quite stunning. Skins are thick too for long-distance transport and great shelf-life. Red flesh is crunchy, juicy, and amazingly sweet. Size is perfect for storing in freezers or ice boxes. You can expect 2 to 3 kilograms on average per fruit in terms of size. This variety grows prolifically on a vine with thick, shady leaves that give excellent coverage. After planting from seed, look forward to a maturity date that kicks in at around 75 days. Variety is a very high yielder and one of the earliest watermelons. Although a diploid, watermelons produce very small seeds - at times giving the appearance of a triploid.
