Fun and easy watermelon


Great little watermelon. Super fun to grow and the white flesh is fun to eat.

Uniquely Flavored Watermelon.


I have raised Cream of Saskatewan on 3%+ OM loam soils for about 20 years, with consistent success. It has a unique citrusy, clean, refreshing, sweet flavor that is reminiscent of lemon lime soda, but without the syrupy sweetness. It seems to have pretty good pest and disease resistance as well. I only grow two varieties of watermelon and this is one of them.
