Small in size but big in flavor! This diminutive little beauty has firm, juicy flesh and a nice thick rind. Doesn’t ‘sprawl’ like larger watermelons; perfect for small spaces or containers. Three-pound fruit. 70 days. Photo courtesy of Park Seed.
Care: Space 3-5′ apart in all directions. Melons need heat and well-drained soil: plant in full sun in raised beds or hills.
Heart of Agave Tequila Garden:
Tequila and mezcal come from the unlikeliest of sources: the roasted heart of the agave, a spiky desert plant. Roasting it caramelizes the sugar and results in a rich, smoky spirit. To the delight of mixologists everywhere, tequila blends well with spicy herbs like sage as well as sweet summer fruit. Try a twist on the classic margarita with watermelon and ‘Margarita’ mint.
