About Watermelon Seeds - Tendersweet Orange

Citrullus lanatus

Seed Type Heirloom Seed

It's name doesn't lie. Tendersweet Orange Watermelons produce lovely oblong fruit with stunningly beautiful and incredibly delicious orange flesh. But, Tendersweet Orange is more than a novelty; in our opinion we feel it can hold its own in a taste test with any more conventional watermelon. You may think that the yellow/orange flesh is a hybrid novelty, but this color has actually been around longer than the pink and red watermelon flesh that we have come to know. We highly recommend this one!
