Watermelon, Orange Glo
The Orange Glo Watermelon was a reliable producer with disease resistant vines producing fruit up to 33 pounds with a sweet crisp flesh that true to its namesake is a bright deep to light orange. The flesh is striped with dark green lines giving way to light green skin. Maturing in 85 days we were continually impressed with the yields and quality of the fruits well into the summer. Orange Glo is a future favorite for friends and family on those long summer days outside.
