From Tatiana's TOMATOBase
- Large oblong watermelon with thin dark green rind, and pink/red flesh. It can grow up to 20 lb, but it is never very big in our garden, as we have much cooler climate. It matures late in Pacific Northwest, and has to be grown in a greenhouse or cold frame. Beige seeds. We are working on developing an earlier strain of this watermelon.
