Watermelon, Orange Tendersweet is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm growing these now! The negative review was a product of human error. The melon in the picture was not ripe! Patience is a virtue. It will become oval on the vine, and very large! We have tons of them, but still waiting for them to ripen. I learned my lesson the same way they did, and picked an unripe melon. This seed produced well

Rated 1 out of 5 by from wrong wrong wrong The first fully ripe 18- pound melon I harvested a few days ago is totally different from the picture on seed packet which I bought at a walmart store. Taste was good though. 1. round shape , not oblong 2. yellow flesh, not orange 3. White seeds, not black

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO EXCITING! I live in the northeast AND didn't get the seeds in the ground until the first week of June- I thought the odds were against me. Almost all of the seeds germinated on 8 inch mounds of 5, I thinned to 3 per hill. The vines have been growing fast, about 4-5 feet each! I've been quick to position them how I want them before the tendrils attached to things or each other. I have 3 little watermelons and tons of blossoms. This morning one of the melons plumped up about triple it's size in 24 hours, so exciting!
