Petite Yellow

Petite Yellow Watermelon

(75 days) F-1 hybrid. Light green with narrow dark green stripes and a little more than half the size of Peace, these 4–5 lb yellow-fleshed cuties make perfect ready-to-go one-meal melons, sweet, juicy, with flavor and texture to please and very few seeds to interfere. Tough skin resists cracking and permits long-distance shipping.

Culture: Harvesting watermelon at proper ripeness is an art. Thumping should produce a low, hollow sound. Spread thumb and forefinger and press hard on fruit. If you feel any give, watermelon is ripe. Don’t heed the traditional advice to wait for the closest tendril to brown—that may be too late. Minimum germination temperature 60°, optimal range 75–95°, optimal temperature 90°. Emergence takes 12 days at 68°, 5 days at 77°, only 17% normal seedlings at 59°, 94% at 68°.
