Details

White is usually associated with bland, but bland is not an adjective you'd use to describe Cream of Saskatchewan! Though it has less watermelon flavor than a red variety, it makes up for it in its incredible sweetness: a perfect diversion from the red-fleshed watermelon norm. Grow them with Blacktail Mountain and Golden Midget for a multi-hued watermelon smorgasbord.
Number of Seeds 30 seeds
Spacing in Row 18 inches
Spacing Between Rows 72 inches
Planting Depth 1/2 inch
Days to Germination 5 to 10 days
Days to Maturity 80 days
Height at Maturity 12 inches
Width at Maturity 60 inches
Direct sow 2 weeks after threat of frost has passed, or start indoors 1-2 weeks before last frost. Plant in full sun, and mulch in between the plants if possible. Watermelons enjoy hot temperatures and need only moderate water to set fruit. In fact, fruit are sweetest in dry seasons. These melons have a thin rind and are susceptible to cracking when ripe - so, when they reach the size of a soccer ball, check them often for peak ripeness.
