WATERMELON (Citrullus lanatus) (90-100 days) (20 seeds)— Mixed bag of greatness! This variety consists of several varieties that we grew in Ohio and two varieties that we saved from fruits we purchased from a man at the farmers’ market in Mission, Kansas. We have grown them in Greater Kansas City since 2016 and they keep evolving to our eating habits and to the local environment. This is the one you want if you are trying to shape a watermelon population as it is diverse. We have yet to eat a fruit from it that we didn’t like. - The Buffalo Seed Company
