Golden Mini Watermelon
Certified Organic Seed
It'll let you know when it's ripe.
If you have watermelon ripeness anxiety, Golden Mini is for you. Not only is this personal-sized melon the first to ripen, but it lets you know by turning golden yellow. Fruits are personal-sized, weighing in at 3-5 pounds each with sweet, salmon-colored flesh.
This variety is more commonly known as "Golden Midget Watermelon." Hudson Valley Seed Co. has replaced a portion of this name with a respectful alternative.
