Here's a pic of it next to a cantaloupe for size comparison.

Wow, now that is a watermelon. Have you cut it yet? I don't grow watermelons because of the space, but I do love a good watermelon. Which I haven't had in a long time, at least not a whole one I've bought. Occasionally I will get a good bite or 2 in a restaurant. Same with cantaloupe. I did grow some cantalope & honeydew melons a few years ago, may have been the last time I've had a really good one. Maybe I should expand my garden enough to grow some again.

I didn't cut it, as I gave it to some friends. I have a bunch more that will ripen soon and I'll have all I can eat and more. This is a really sweet and tasty variety. The only kind I grow anymore.
