Peace

Peace Watermelon

(75 days) F-1 hybrid. At the end of my Common Ground Exhibition Hall table talk one Sunday we tasted one alongside the old standard Seminis-Monsanto’s Yellow Doll. Although the informal vote afterwards was split, Peace compared favorably in flavor, texture and sweetness enhanced with a floral aftertone that added some complexity. Its yellow flesh has that kind of drizzle-down-your chin juiciness that thoroughly satisfies on a hot late-summer day. Good production of 8 lb avg fruits adorned with light green skin punctuated with narrow dark green stripes.

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°.
