Orangeglo watermelon

Origin - USA.

Days to ripen - 85 days.

Rind -   Flesh -  This is a wonderful watermelon with almost tropical flavoured, deep orange flesh.  Fruit weight -

High yields and wilt resistant. Strong vines. The rind is very brittle so it is not good for transport.    

 My Notes:  This is by far my favourite watermelon. I never liked watermelon until I tasted this one. 

2011 Harvest - Plants produced only one fruit each averaging 4 kg. Usually I would expect them to produce at least 2 fruits each. I often get two harvests of these melons.
