WATERMELON (Citrullus lanatus) (90-100 days) (20 seeds)— Seed was Mountain Sweet Yellow, but they have never produced oblong fruits since we acquired them. We have been growing them in Greater Kansas City since 2017 and they never let us down. The yellow flesh is quite a treat and will fill that Midwest watermelon desire that pops into our minds in the summer. - The Buffalo Seed Company
The Buffalo Seed Company supplies growers in the Midwest with locally adapting horticulture and crop seeds to increase the resiliency and sustainability of our local food systems. The Company was launched by Matthew & Nancy Kost in October, 2018.

Matthew is originally from Kansas City and has returned after obtaining a Bachelor in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from the University of Kansas, a Ph.D. in Evolutionary Agroecology from The Ohio State University, and Postdoctoral degree in conserving amaranth and quinoa landraces in Peru. Matthew and Nancy have extensive farming experience throughout the Americas and have deep knowledge and wisdom of seeds, seed systems, evolution, ecology, and adaptation.
