Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Your kids will not be disappointed by the taste, but they might not win any seed spitting contests, as Crimson Sweet contains very few seeds.
Crimson Sweet watermelon thrives in a wide range of climates. This watermelon is resistant to anthracnose and fusarium wilt. Make lots of room for crimson sweet watermelon as it spreads 6-10 feet, growing the absolute sweetest melons of all. It even has an award to prove it!
Crimson Sweet heirloom watermelon was introduced by Charles V. Hall of Kansas State University in 1963. Crimson Sweet came about by crossing together the varieties Miles, Peacock and Charleston Gray.
My seeds germinated well, but I didn't have them close enough to the light, and they had to reach too far for it. They got lanky and then eventually died. I am going to try just direct seeding them into my garden once it warms up. I expect they will germinate well again and do great!
Crimson sweet review to date
The seed we planted 2 weeks ago are germinating very well. I take this as an indication that we have the potential for a good crop.
