Organic Charleston Gray Watermelon Seeds Citrullus lanatus Charleston Grey Watermelon, Southern Gray Watermelon Description: This classic, oblong watermelon, Charleston Gray has bright red fiberless flesh, and a tough, medium-thick gray-green rind often used for making watermelon rind pickles. At one time this was the predominant watermelon in home gardens and markets. Days to Maturity: 84 Days Fruit: The flesh is bright red and mouthwateringly sweet. Fruit Size: Up to 24 inches in length, 12-14 inches in diameter, 25 - 30 Pounds Fruit Color: Grey/Green skin with a smooth, fiberless, very sweet, red flesh. USDA Zones: 2b - 11b (At elevation Zones 3b - 11b) Life: Annual Soil: Loose, loamy, amended with compost, slightly sandy. The better the soil, the better the Watermelon. Mulching with dark/black material to cover the soil will serve multiple purposes: it will warm the soil, hinder weed growth and keep developing fruits clean. Soil pH: 6.0 to 6.8 Sun: Full sun, no shade. Sowing: If you live in warmer climes, you can direct sow seeds outdoors, but wait until the soil temperature warms to at least 70 degrees F to avoid poor germination and losses. Watermelon vines are exceptionally tender and should not be transplanted until all danger of frost has passed. To be safe, wait at least two weeks past your absolute last frost date. [Gardeners in colder climates can still have success in growing watermelon by starting seeds indoors.] Even a very light frost (31 to 33F) is fatal
