Description

Unique color and fantastic flavor. Enormous melons with beautiful, deep orange flesh. Very sweet, almost tropical flavor, with white seeds. The best-tasting of all orange watermelon varieties, in our opinion. A favorite at roadside stands and farm markets. Highly resistant to wilt, insects and splitting.
