This is THE huge melon of bragging rights proportions. Fruits can be over 200 LB! Many seed sellers state that this is a 90 day to maturity melon, but this is really a 120 day melon. So be prepared for a long growing season. The brilliant red fruit is sweet and delicious. Plant as soon as soil temps reach 70 degrees. Plant seeds between 3/4" and 1" deep. Be patient, as germination can be erratic, and can take weeks. Plan for each hill grow over a 600 square ft area.
