Details

A very aromatic melon and just the right size to fit in the refrigerator. Melons are nearly a perfect sphere, 3 to 7 pounds with bright yellow flesh and a dark and light green striped rind. Very juicy and sweet - lots of fun! Great for summer refreshment, sliced, as Agua Fresca, in fruit salads and as a sorbet. Petite Yellow watermelon is perfect for those with a short growing season. This sweet little melon produces as fast as just over two months.
