Watermelon, Katanya (Organic)

Citrullus lanatus.  75 days.

Round, ice box type fruit reach 10-15 lbs, and average 10″ in diameter. Dark green, nearly black rind. Fruit have a pinkish red, sweet flesh that is quite a treat. This Russian heirloom is early and vines are quite vigorous, producing a lot of fruit until frost. Comparable to Blacktail Mountain but with larger fruit. Watermelon aficionados know that Russian watermelons are something special. We thank Terroir Seed for introducing us to this gem. Originally from a woman named Katanya who lives in northern Illinois.

      Since watermelons are frost sensitive we recommend waiting until after risk of frost. There a number of frost date calculator tools out there, usually based on zip code. Here’s a link to one over at Dave’s Garden.
