This North Idaho-bred watermelon has deep red, juicy flesh and ripens easily during short Montana summers. These hardy plants consistently produce round, 6-12 lb. fruits with dark, green-black rinds. Glenn Drowns of Sandhill Preservation Center bred and developed this cold tolerant variety as a teenager when he lived with his family in Idaho at the base of Blacktail mountain, where the nightly temperatures consistently dip into the 40s.
