Borrie's Yellow Watermelon (Citrullus lanatus) Seed source donated to SSE in the 1970’s by the Borries family of Teutopolis, Illinois. This is super sweet semi-oblong fruit with creamy flesh. Rind ripens to green with beautiful dark-green stripes. We have had very consistent success with this variety, noting very good resistance to wilt, drought and sunburn. This may be the highest sugar content of all the watermelons we grow! LIMITED QUANTITIES for 2023!
