€2.60Price
  • Charleston Grey Watermelon (Citrullus lanatus): ancient American variety, now naturalized Italian.The fruits are large, 14 kg and more, 60 cm long, 30 in diameter, oblong; the skin is lightly coloured and holds a crispy, tasty pulp, with a strong taste of older watermelons, the very ancient ones. The skin is very thick, which means it protects the fruit both, during development because it helps it tolerate well torrid summers, and in conservation after harvest. We recommend to trim the plant to reduce water consumption. With the correct care, the harvest will provide some or of the best watermelons in the world.
