An outstanding little watermelon with a golden yellow rind and salmon pink flesh. Golden Midget is pleasantly sweet, about 3 pounds in weight. Bred by Elwyn Meader and Albert Yaeger at UNH in 1959; a cross between New Hampshire Midget and Pumpkin Rind. Has a built-in ripeness indicator: fruits turn yellow when ready. An early variety. (70 days)

Each packet contains approximately 25 seeds.

Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Choose a planting site with full sun, well-drained soil and good air circulation. A gentle, south-facing slope is ideal. Sow 1/2 inch deep after the last frost and temperatures are warm. Space plants 12-inches apart, in rows 6-feet apart. Small bush varieties may be spaced 3-feet apart. Keep soil moist at all times.

Fruits are ready to harvest when stems turn from green to brown and begin to dry. In addition, look for the underside — where the fruit rests on the ground — to turn from a greenish white to yellow or cream colored. Cut from vines with at least one inch of stem attached.
