WATERMELON DESERT KING (Yellow) – (OP) 85 days. We have named this melon Desert King because we consider it the most drought tolerant variety we have found for dry land, desert-like conditions. Round to slightly oblong, light pea green color, medium thin, tough rind, deep rich yellow, sweet and tender flesh with grayish-black seeds. It has the ability to lie on the vine a month or so after ripening and still hold its good qualities and remain free from sunburn. A small percentage of red flesh melons may be found. Positively will not sunburn!
