SANGRIA WATERMELON (F1 Hybrid 87 days)

Sangria is thought of as the "gold standard" when it comes to watermelon, the best of those big ones that command the produce section in late summer. The elongated fruit run 20 to 25 pounds and the rind is mostly green with lighter green stripes. Flesh is a lovely red and flavor is terrific. So sweet, so juicy. 20 seeds.


Indoors- Individual biodegradable peat/ cowpots 1/2” deep, 3-4 weeks before last frost with soil temperature 70 degrees. Transplant 36” apart after last frost without disturbing the roots.

Outdoors- 1/2” deep after last frost in warm soil at least 70 degrees.

Harvest- Look for the following signs as it does take some practice on telling when they are ready to harvest. The closet tendril to the stem dries, there is a crack in the stem that attaches to the watermelon to the vine, where the watermelon touches the ground it should be a butter yellow color, give it a knock with your hands it should sound hollow, the skin is dull, and slipping of the stem from the melon with slight finger pressure.

Tips- Plant in fertile soil amended with compost or well rotted manure and keep well watered. They benefit from growing on black plastic and by using row covers for weed, insect control, and more rapid growth.

    Favorite red watermelon up to this point.

    Sangria was an awesome watermelon in my garden this year.


    the best

    I live in Northern Illinois and I had the best crop ever last year--average weight was 29#--this is the best seeded watermelon I ever grew. From 5 seeds, I harvested over 15 melons. I took some pics and everyone thought I lived down south

    Simply the Best!

    I grew this watermelon for the second time this year and it is to me, the best watermelon I have ever eaten. Crisp enough but still tender with a nice complexity to it's flavor. Second on my list is a tie between Gold Strike and Orangeglo. Gold Strike gets the nod due to it's ability to out produce all others and deliver great taste. I wish Pine Tree would carry Gold Strike for its deep gold color, disease resistance, and amazing yields. What a duo it would be growing in your garden with Sangria.
