Round, striped 20-30 lb melons. Very smooth, hard and tough rind. Very flavorful, bright red flesh with black seeds. Even prior to full maturity the flesh is an attractive red color. Vigorous vine growth throughout the season. Good shipper!
Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
