Crimson Sweet

88 days — The fruits are light-green with dark-green stripes and average about twenty five pounds. The flesh is dark red with a fine texture and very sweet. It has small, dark seeds, is resistant to anthracnose and fusarium wilt, and is an excellent shipping variety.

It was bred by Charles V. Hall while working at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas as a cross of ('Miles' x 'Peacock') x 'Charleston Gray'.  After a decade of working on the variety, it was released in 1963. 'Crimson Sweet' was an "All-America Selection®" winner in 1964 and quickly became the most popular variety grown throughout the United States. Each packet contains two grams, which is approximately 40 seeds.
Sweet and delicious flesh - Classic watermelon.
Sweet and delicious flesh, what I consider a classic watermelon. Had some weigh in at 30 to 35 lbs. The rind is on the thinner side, grows well in our sandy soil and produces an abundance of vines. Very high germination rate, highly recommend.
