What is the plant
Citrullus lanatus 'Crimson Sweet' is among the most popular watermelon varieties that produces a 20- to 25-pound, red-fleshed fruit in 80 to 85 days. It is a great choice for beginners since it is resistant to common incurable fungal diseases.
Crimson Sweet watermelon variety was introduced by Kansas State University in 1963 and has become a commercial favorite which ships and stores well. Crimson Sweet develops large 15- to 25-pound (6.8 to 11.3 kilos) fruits with lovely dark and light green striping and deeply red flesh. The melons are oval with blunt ends and ripen just as the summer heat is beginning to sizzle. The vines are 6 to 8 feet (1.8 to 2.4 m.), sprawling and rambling over anything in their path. The melons are resistant to fusarium wilt and anthracnose, two common fungal diseases of the garden that do not have a cure. These traits and others make Crimson Sweet watermelon care a much more breezy affair than varieties without resistance.
