Peace Yellow Watermelon

Annual
Full sun
6 feet long
2 feet wide

Picture this, it's late-August in California and much too late to start watermelons, according to professional gardeners. It was a rather mild August and certainly would not justify growing a watermelon at the end of the melon season. At least, in normal circles.

My gardener and I battled over whether or not the plant would get established let alone fruit. It didn't matter I told him. I wasn't digging it up. It stood a better chance in the ground rather than in the pot.

Well, not only did that little plant grow, it took off and by the end of October, it had tons of blooms. It was an extraordinarily compact, dark green vine with a prolific blooming cycle.

It proved to be 'the vine that could' as it produced the most adorable and delicious SWEET yellow-fleshed melons about the size of a very large softball. A good 6-pounder each. And who do you think was first in line to collect a melon? Yes, it was the gardener who said it was not possible to grow a melon beyond August. And, it was the best tasting watermelon of the year.

~ Honey sweet
~ Excellent texture
~ Fabulous flavor
~ Outstanding watermelon for compact areas
~ Perfect for home gardeners
~ Easy to grow (ours planted beyond a section of zinnias)

Approximately 75 days to maturity and according to all who encountered it, well worth the wait. We now have a waiting list for future Peace Yellow melons. Not a big seed producer and we have a limited quantity available. 5 seeds per packet.
