100 days — The rind is tough, medium green with darker stripes, cylindrical in shape with blunt ends. Can reach twelve inches by twenty five inches and up to fifty pounds. Does extremely well in Southeastern U.S. and has a medium red colored flesh with very high sugar content and white seeds.

'Congo' was bred and released by Dr. C. F. Poole and Dr. C. F. Andrus at the Regional Vegetable Breeding Laboratory of the U. S. Department of Agriculture at Charleston, South Carolina[1,2] in 1949.  The name Congo was given this variety to symbolize the continent from which watermelons originated.[2]  It was an "All-America Selection®" winner in 1950.[1]  Each packet contains two grams, which is approximately 25 seeds.
