About This Product

Heirloom developed to fit in a refrigerator (a.k.a. icebox). The small, perfectly round, very sweet fruits have deep red flesh and a dark green rind. Due to the smaller size, Icebox watermelons mature a little earlier than larger varieties. Maturity: 78-days after planting.

Highlights

  • Deep red, very sweet flesh is high in lycopene and vitamins A and C
  • Ideal for small servings
  • Plant where vines can sprawl in the garden
  • Mature earlier than other watermelon varieties
  • Bonnie Plants has over 70 greenhouses across the country, so our plants don't have to travel far to get to you

Q:Can the be grown a on a trellis

1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  We do not suggest that you grow watermelons on a trellis. It can be done but very labor intensive. You will need a sturdy trellis as well as create a hammock for every fruit to be supported.

    Don't expect to harvest the picture.
    Planted in early May, just cut our first melon today (August). Full of large seeds and almost no flavor. Not something we plan on growing again. Only plus is that it was enjoyable to watch it grow.

      Super sweet
      I was hesitant because I am growing in pots. But I planted them early summer and I must say it was way easier than I thought. We love watermelon and a super large one is too much for the two of us. This was perfect

        Late in season. Price should have been cut. Replacements for earlier planting losses.
