Cal-Sweet Bush Watermelon
Compact, bushy vines grow only 14 to 18" long (much shorter than most varieties) and have lots of leaf cover to protect fruits. Each plant yields up to 3 fruits that are 10 to 12 lbs each. Tolerant of Powdery Mildew and is exceptionally sweet, crisp, and juicy textured. Perfect for small space gardens and one of the best-tasting watermelons on the market.
Melons are a rich source of potassium, vitamin A, and vitamin C, as well as potassium and fiber.
Melons need good pollination to ensure that you have ample fruit set. Plant with lots of herbs and flowers to bring in pollinators.
Starter will be in a 4" reusable nursery pot.
