85 days. An indispensable heirloom considered by many to be one of the most adaptable and best-flavored watermelons. The beautiful, deep orange flesh is very sweet with almost tropical flavor, including notes of mango and citrus! Orangeglo produces vigorous vines that are high yielding and early to mature. This Texas heirloom thrives in a wide range of zones and can sometimes be reliably grown as far north as zone 4! The strong healthy vines are somewhat resistant to wilt and insects; just be aware that the fruit’s skin is thinner than commercial varieties. Thinner skin means that the fruit will crack or burst more easily when struck, so be sure to take extra care in transport. The incredible flavor more than makes up for the lack of shipping quality. This heirloom was introduced by Willhite Seed Co. of Poolville, Texas, prior to 1965. A favorite for local markets and farm-to-table chefs.
