Blacktail Mountain

Citrullus lanatus (75 days) 

Developed by Glenn Downs from the Sandhill Preservation Center, created while he lived in northern Idaho, a location which has cool 35 to 45 degree nights and short seasons. He says, “The fruit is dark green with very faint stripes, flesh is an orange red similar to Sugar Baby. Continuously, it is my earliest type in over 100 varieties grown each season. Fruit averages 6 to 10 pounds. Our son, Cory, and family moved to a new home in mid-July, 2013 and he wanted to plant a garden. He stuck in some Blacktail Mountain seed on July 18 and was rewarded in late September with an abundance of nice sized ripe melons. OSSI (Open Source Seed Initiative) Pledged Variety.
