Triple Star Hybrid Watermelon

Description
Triple Star Hybrid Seedless Watermelon is sure to be a flavor favorite! Its deep red, firm flesh is high in sugars—and it has almost no hollow heart. The 17-19 lb. fruits have dark green rinds striped with lighter green. Ideal for the home gardener, its fruits are excellent for eating fresh and fruit salads. 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. Plant with a seeded variety for proper pollination. 10 seeds per pkt. 85 DAYS.
