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

Comments from Daves Garden about Tendersweet Orange Watermelon...
"This melon is my favorite this summer, crisp, sweet, large, 35 pounds. This has hollow heart, which I really enjoy. Seems to hold on the vine longer than most."
"This is the stardard for orange fleshed watermelons. It is a long type melon with markings similar to the Allsweet type ( dark green with lighter green strips). Average size is about 30 lbs. Taste and texture are excellent. An added advantage over Orangeglo is that the rind is tough enough to allow marketing at local/farmers markets."
