Watermelon: Sweet Dakota Rose
A PRAIRIE ROAD ORIGINAL!
CERTIFIED ORGANIC SEED, 1 packet (25 seeds)
Citrullus lanatus (80-90 days) Over 30 years ago David Podoll crossed a small early maturing variety (Early Canada) with a large, southern shipping variety (Black Diamond) to create this medium-sized 15-20 lb delight. After decades of selection, it is well adaptable to cool, short seasons and fluctuating weather conditions, making it easier for you to successfully grow. It has been called one of the sweetest, open-pollinated watermelons and has few, small seeds. With a thin but firm skin, it handles and stores well.
