Mountain Sweet Yellow

Description
Large, Sweet Yellow That's Very Productive
Mountain Sweet Yellow Watermelon has a deep, rich yellow flesh with a pleasingly firm texture and delightfully sweet flavor. Productive and reliable vines produce lots of 20-35 lb. oblong fruits with dark green rinds striped with light green. Tasty and attractive, it's a top choice for fresh markets. Mountain Sweet Yellow performs very well in the north. Watermelon seeds can be sown directly into the ground in warmer climates. In areas with shorter growing seasons, start seeds indoors and transplant to the garden after the danger of frost has passed. Fruits are ready for harvest when the underside of the fruits changes from greenish white to creamy white. Approx. 25 seeds per pkt. 90 DAYS.
