Commercially introduced by us in the U.S.!
We searched for all three flesh color (red, orange, white) strains of Çekirdeği Oyalı for a long time, until we finalized our search in 2018. When we first released the seeds for the orange strain, we had a very limited stock. We have received so many requests from gardeners and seed savers asking us when more seeds would be available since then. Many thanks to Tom Wahlberg, farmer, seed saver and former seed house manager of Seed Savers Exchange, and Wahlberg family who grew, harvested and processed our current seed stock their family farm in Decorah, IA, we can offer this amazing watermelon once again.
Round, uniform, large fruits of this strain have dark rind. Flesh has excellent sweet flavor, crunchy texture and a beautiful, bright orange color. We are thrilled to be able to offer seeds again for this amazing Anatolian watermelon.
Packet has 20 seeds
