Marvelous Melons!


One plant produced about 8- 10, fifteen to twenty pound watermelons. They were very easy to grow and juicy deliciousness every one of them! Or so we were told.We ended up gifting several to neighbors, friends, family and ended up consuming four melons to ourselves over a course of a week.
