Organic Blacktail Watermelon - Citrullus lanatus
Considered to be the best tasting watermelon by some leading watermelon connoisseurs (we want that job!). Does great in the north but also can handle heat and drought. This summer treat was developed by Glenn Drowns of Sand Hill Preservation Center in Iowa. Thanks Glenn!
The dark green rind houses juicy, sweet, red flesh. Fruits are 6 - 12 pounds and will fit in your icebox. Rind is even edible and its delicious!
Produces high yields of melons that keep well. Great for summer refreshment, sliced, as agua fresca, in fruit salads and as sorbet.
Seed Count : 25
