If you want to grow enormous watermelons that can feed a crowd or compete in the largest watermelon contests, Carolina Cross #180 is the variety for you. It can produce fruits up to 200 lbs. The red flesh is extra juicy, crisp and refreshing on a hot summer's day. The oblong fruits have thick, bruise-resistant rinds that are dark and light green striped. To produce fruits that are so large, this open-pollinated, heirloom variety needs space in the garden or watermelon patch. Plan for about 12 ft. in all directions for each hill. 89 DAYS.
