Melon, Watermelon ‘Tigrinho'
A beautiful looking and productive tiger striped variety weighing 2-3 kg with sweet, firm, crisp, red flesh. Flavour is out of this world, much better than the seedless types. ‘Tigrinho’ will ripen in cooler as well as warmer areas of Australia.
Grow them in two ways:
1. Plant one seed per pot in October in a warm indoor spot. Plant out after the last frost in a spot protected from wind. A plastic tree guard may be used. Harvest in February.
2. Plant two seeds directly into the garden in November. Thin to one plant when the first leaves appear. Harvest these in March.
