Orangeglo

Orangeglo Watermelon OG

(90 days) Open-pollinated. The most orange of watermelons, much favored by Glenn Drowns. Like us, Drowns enjoys convincing people to try new things. Orangeglo was one of his big triumphs at farmers market. When he took them for the first time, some folks even refused his free samples. The next week people were waiting in line. Not the sweetest of our melons, however its crisp tender bright orange flesh is juicy and refreshing with an almost tropical flavor. Adapted to the Northeast and every bit as good as Drowns promised, the striped oblong melons average 10 and often achieve 15 lb. Let them stay in the field an extra few days when the stem is drying because they reach full sweetness only when completely ripe. Large, plentiful seeds. WSU Brix rating of 10.7%.

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°.
