Yellow Doll Watermelon is a hybrid watermelon with a unique and beautiful, bright yellow flesh. These melons have small Seeds with a great, sweet taste. This watermelon variety is classified as an "icebox" type, which simply means it is small enough to fit inside the fridge. Yellow Doll Watermelon has an early maturity date, but should be harvested as soon as it is ready to prevent splitting in the field. Fruits average 6 to 10 lbs and have dark green stripes with a delicious, bright yellow flesh. Plants are relatively compact which means this is a great variety for growing in gardens with limited space. The vines are semi-compact and will produce fruits early which would be great for northern climates.

Watermelons may be direct seeded or transplanted. For direct seeding, we recommend planting Seeds every 12" along the intended row to ensure a good stand. Once plants emerge, thin plants to one every 2 feet. Watermelons can be susceptible to plant diseases if excess leaf moisture is present. As a result, we recommend using drip irrigation on watermelons to reduce leaf moisture and feed plants more effectively. During periods of heavy rainfall, using a fungicide like Liquid Copper can help to alleviate disease pressure as well.

Watermelons also perform well when transplanted. In early spring, we recommend transplanting to get a jump start on the growing season. Watermelon prefers warmer temperatures for seed to germinate. By transplanting, you can have plants in the ground before the soil temperature warms enough to direct seed. We recommend starting transplants 4-5 weeks before the desired outdoor planting date. Watermelon transplants grow great in our heavy-duty seed starting trays, where they develop a solid root ball with roots that are trained to grow downward. Plants are ready to go in the ground when they can be easily pulled from the cells in the seed starting tray. Watermelons are ready to harvest when the tendril near the fruit completely dries. The tendril can be found between the fruit stem and the fruit. It is usually curly and green but will dry when fruits are ready to harvest.

Very good

I had loads of these melons from a single 20’ row. Melons were very good, and personal sized. I ate one nearly everyday after work once they started getting ripe. Can’t wait to grow them again this year.

Amazing Yield

2 years into growing these lovely watermelons and I'm even more impressed than last year. The vines are absolutely loaded. They are easy to keep trimmed and controlled. The fruit is early and absolutely delicious. They also keep surprisingly long in refrigeration. All in all my favourite watermelon I've grown to date. I can't recommend them enough.
