Citrullus lanatus
FRUIT-CHAMPAGNE-WATERMELON have fine, crispy flesh & a sweet flavor. Slightly oval with fruit approx 20 cm in diameter, they also have a compact vine making them ideal for people with limited garden space. Externally the melon is green with pale stripes. Weight typically 2.5-3.5Kg. This plant is attractive to bees & butterflies. Watermelons contain lycopene (which has been shown have antioxidant qualities) & carotenoids (which convert to Vitamin A in the body), & are a good source of Vitamin C.
