Features yellow watermelon and red contrast
The most pronounced difference of this variety is the yellowness inside the watermelon, which is absolutely not characteristic of the habitual fruit of this culture. The color of the pulp does not impersonate itself, hiding behind the absolutely identical skin of the melon. Saturated yellow flesh, at first glance inspires its attractiveness and taste, which you will not complain if you try. The fruit is really very juicy and sweet, just melts in your mouth.
Imagine a yellow watermelon with an incredible taste, and now attention, is absolutely devoid of seeds, which still strive to get caught on a tooth. Indeed, some varieties of gourds provide such a feature that is very nice. It is attractive and convenient to consume, which betrays melon and gourd fruits even more immaculately. Since the watermelon inside is yellow, the fact of the presence of a large number of dark seeds is emphasized by the effect of black on light contrast.
As for the differences at the stages of the growing season of a watermelon bush, only the fact of early ripening should be noted, otherwise the bush develops in the same manner and practically under the same conditions.

The leaf is hairy, all the same green.

Consequently, despite its territorial affiliation, varieties of yellow watermelon can be safely launched into the market turn.

Fortunately, breeders have managed to cross without GMOs and chemical interventions, creating a hybrid of wild and domesticated melons. Due to the yellow color of the pulp, characteristic of wild watermelon, it turned out something in the form of saturated yellow, which inspires appetite.
