83 days to harvest Citrullus lanatus

With Organic Honey Island Watermelon, it was love at first bite. With brilliant yellow flesh with incredible sweetness, we love her round 6- to 8-pound fruits, perfect for a picnic at any moment of August. Honey Island is earlier than most, easily maturing for us in Zone 5.

To harvest even more and earlier melons, grow them under hoops and floating row cover until they flower. This allows them to grow faster while also protecting them from the voracious cucumber beetles transmitting bacterial wilt.
