Pony Red Mini Watermelon

80 days. Pony is the perfectly sized Watermelon for a romantic breakfast for two. Weighing in at 5 to 6 pounds each, Pony yields little, light green globes marked with dark green stripes. Its thin rind encases delicious, firm and sweet red-pink flesh that is simply irresistible. A Japanese hybrid, Pony is relatively early, disease-resistant and incredibly productive~one hill yields about ten prized Melons. (F1.)

  • Information
  • Nothing speaks the sultry language of summer like the juicy taste of Melons. Direct-sow the seed 4 weeks before the last spring frost date and transplant out when nighttime temperatures are reliably 55°F. Install supportive trellising structure through which to train the vines. As Melons reach maturity, stop watering to prevent splitting. Harvest when the stem disconnects readily from the vine. Fat-free and low-calorie, most Melons are high in Vitamins A and C. For wild raves and acclaim, make Shelburne Farm's Watermelon, Tomato and Feta Salad. Bee friendly. Deer resistant.

    Average seed life: 2 years.
