• Florida Giant Watermelon
    60-90 Days
    Heirloom 1940's

    A giant melon that's firm, red, juicy and so sweet! Melons are long and oval with deep green rind and can grow long and up to 50 pounds! The rind is perfectly thin but very strong making it a good option if you need to get it to the market. Thrives in warm climates. The perfect choice for the home gardener and market grower. A good producer. Resistant to fusarium wilt, anthracnose and sunburn. The yellow belly is where it lies on the ground.

    Garden tips: For early fruiting and to overcome a short growing season, start seeds in a warm, well-lighted indoor area 3 to 4 weeks before last spring frost. Before transplanting to the garden, acclimate plants to outdoor conditions by moving to a sheltered area outside for a week.
