Less watermelon flavor than a red variety, but compensates with incredible sweetness. Rinds are quite thin, and flesh is exceptionally juicy. Does well in short seasons.

Detailed Product Info

White is usually associated with bland, but bland is not an adjective you'd use to describe Cream of Saskatchewan! Though it has less watermelon flavor than a red variety, it makes up for it in its incredible sweetness: a perfect diversion from the red-fleshed watermelon norm. Grow them with Blacktail Mountain and Golden Midget for a multi-hued watermelon smorgasbord.

Growing Instructions

Direct sow 2 weeks after threat of frost has passed, or start indoors 1-2 weeks before last frost. Plant in full sun, and mulch in between the plants if possible. Watermelons enjoy hot temperatures and need only moderate water to set fruit. In fact, fruit are sweetest in dry seasons. These melons have a thin rind and are susceptible to cracking when ripe - so, when they reach the size of a soccer ball, check them often for peak ripeness.
