Crimson Sweet Watermelon

Puggylover Zone 9B Norco, CAAugust 12, 2013

Hi All!

Just picked the first Crimson Sweet Watermelon....

12.3 brix and just a little over 22 lbs

I am always nervous to pick watermelons but I think I did good this time!

How are everyone else's measuring up?

That's a nice watermelon. 12.3 brix is in the really good category. Mine have run 10-14 with 14 almost too sweet. I'm happy with 12 brix...that's just right!!

I was so excited when I cut it open and it was pink! So glad I didn't have to send such a beautiful watermelon to the compost pile.

It was/is pretty darn tasty! I agree ....just right!

You know I have been working hard on my watering....;)
