Description:  One of the earliest watermelons we know of, superb for marginal watermelon climates, but it also grows well in heat and drought. The flesh is red and deliciously sweet. Fruit have a dark rind and weigh 3-5 kg each.

Planting Instructions:  Sow seeds into trays and prick out at 2.5 cm diagonal spacings, when first leaves appear, or plant into 10 cm pots. Transplant into rich free draining soil (under cloches if necessary) when plants have 2-4 true leaves at 50 cm diagonal spacing.
