(25 seeds; 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. 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. Growing Notes- - Soil Temp. for Germ.: 70-95 degrees F; Planting Depth: 1/4-1/2 inch; Plant Spacing: 9 inches with rows 6 feet apart. Days to Germ.: 6-10; Days to Maturity: 80-90; Full Sun.
