The first true Allsweet hybrid, Sangria is simply the best-tasting watermelon you will ever eat. The dark red flesh is packed with sugars for an incredibly delicious bite, fresh or chilled. Grow the gourmet variety you'd pay top dollar for at the fresh market with scrumptious Sangria!
This oblong, striped melon reaches about 20 to 24 pounds, but that won't even be enough once you taste the supersweet flavor. Sangria is a watermelon lover's dream, each slice more succulent and sweet than the one before it. Luckily, with this vigorous, disease-resistant plant, you'll have plenty of melons to sample.
Tolerant of Fusarium races 1 and 2 as well as anthracnose, this plant grows quickly and is very strong. Once the melons start appearing, place a bit of straw beneath them to minimize their contact with the damp ground, and just wait for them to mature. You are in for an unparalleled treat!
