Cream of Saskatchewan Watermelon
80 days. A beautiful little melon with sweet, tasty, cream-colored flesh! An excellent variety for the north. Fruits around 8-10 lbs each with a striped, green rind. Originally from Russia, Cream of Saskatchewan was brought to Canada by Russian immigrants
Contains 15 heirloom seeds
I've raised these in the past, and the flavor is unique and fruity. They're very sweet and were very in demand wirh family and friends.
The rind is very thin and brittle, if you get heavy rain when they're ripe the rind will burst. This is also why they aren't commercially successful. Kids love to see it when you atick the knife in and the two halves fall apart. If you can only grow one melon, grow this one.
