Tendersweet Orange Watermelon (Citrullus lanatus)
Tendersweet Orange Watermelons produce lovely oblong fruit with stunningly beautiful orange flesh. The flesh of this heirloom favourite is luscious and bright orange. The oblong striped fruits grow to 35 pounds and are tender and sweet. Tendersweet Orange, on the other hand, is more than a novelty; in our opinion, it can compete with any more traditional watermelon in a taste test.
