Watermelon 'Blacktail Mountain'

Round 6-12 lb. red-fleshed watermelons that thrive in our summers! The emphasis here is on "thrives" not "survives," because let's face it, we are not exactly living in the heart of melon country. An early breeding project of seed savior Glen Drowns, this variety was bred to survive summers in the Idaho mountains, where nights are often in the 40s. Super sweet flesh is bright red, and juicy. The plants handle humidity well.
