Burpee Crimson Sweet Watermelon Seeds - Green
Large, round melons averaging 25 pounds are light green with dark green stripes. Flesh is dark red, firm, and fine-textured. This watermelon variety is resistant to Fusarium wilt and anthracnose. Garden hints: For early fruiting and to overcome a short growing season, start seeds in a warm, well-lighted indoor area three to four weeks before last spring frost. Before transferring to the garden, accustom plants to outdoor conditions by moving to a sheltered area outside for a week. Grow on plastic mulch to control weeds, conserve soil moisture and protect fruit by keeping it off the ground.
