(Citrullus lanatus) Not your typical watermelon, white flesh is hard
and tasteless when raw. Citron has been grown for
centuries and used to make preserves, pickles, and
“sweetmeats.” This variety has vivid red seeds and a
light green rind with dark green stripes. Fruits can
be stored for up to a year. Extremely productive,
drought tolerant, and resilient. 90-100 days.

Green Thumb Tip Sow seeds outdoors in 12" diameter hills after danger
of frost has passed and soil has warmed. Space hills
8' apart in all directions. Seeds will germinate in
4-10 days. Can also be started indoors 4 weeks before
transplanting out. Watermelons love heat and prefer
sandy or light-textured soils.
