Product Overview

Citrullus lanatus

Add more sunshine to your summer picnic. Colorful, very sweet yellow fruit is beautiful in fruit salads or simply sliced and served.

Cutting into this large, 20–35 pound, oblong melon will reveal plenty of juicy, sweet, yellow fruit. These melons have a dark green rind marked with lighter green stripes. Developed from the very popular red-fleshed 'Mountain Sweet' melon grown in the mid-1800s by farmers in the Northeast, this variety grows in any region with warm summers. Long, warm summers produce the largest watermelons.

Variety Info

'Mountain Sweet Yellow' produces oblong fruits that average 20–35 pounds. Outer rind is dark green with lighter green stripes. The yellow interior is firm and sweet.

Sowing Inside

Not recommended except in very short growing seasons, 2 to 4 weeks before transplanting. Roots are sensitive to disturbance; sow in biodegradable pots that can be planted directly into the ground. Transplant when soil temperature is at least 60°F.

Sowing Outside

RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is 70°–90°F.
