Watermelon 'New Queen' F1

Watermelon isn't just red anymore. 'New Queen' is a unique, gourmet melon with bright orange flesh. The sweet flavor and crisp texture makes growing this melon worth the effort. Early to mature in about 65 to 75 days, the strong vines need up to 9 feet of garden space. The icebox size weighs about 5 to 6 pounds. Easy to grow from seed or plants.
