Sangria Red & Pink Flesh Watermelon


Sangria Red & Pink Flesh Watermelon

Citrullus lanatus
(88 days) F-1 hybrid. The sweetest (as much as 12–14% sugars in some tests) juiciest watermelon in our trials. These elongated ovals average 10–12 lb with dark green skin broken by light green stripes. Bright refined red flesh will satisfy the most avid sugar seekers. Sangria, the first hybrid Allsweet type ever developed, has been a big hit on the market. Cannot ship to South Carolina. Tolerant to some races of ANTH and F. May not ripen in areas with insufficient heat.

We have decided to stop carrying varieties sold by Syngenta Group or its subsidiaries, Hollar and Goldsmith. Starting with the 2024 catalog, you will not see any Syngenta Group, or Code 6, varieties listed in our paper catalog. We will continue to sell some varieties online until our in house inventory is gone. Purchasing them will not further support Syngenta Group, but help us limit our losses and lessen the financial impact of our decision.

Culture: Harvesting watermelon at proper ripeness is an art. Thumping should produce a low, hollow sound. Spread thumb and forefinger and press hard on fruit. If you feel any give, watermelon is ripe. Don’t heed the traditional advice to wait for the closest tendril to brown—that may be too late. Minimum germination temperature 60°, optimal range 75–95°.

Diseases: ANTH: Anthracnose, F: Fusarium
