An attractive and versatile watermelon, Zepplin ticks a lot of boxes. With strong vine vigour, allowing greater fruit protection. Dark red, firm, sweet flesh gives a delightful eating experience. Zepplin is a highly adaptable variety and while suited to all watermelon production areas, really likes hot climates.
Did you know that dark skin watermelons absorb more heat that striped rind patterns, which can result in burnt skin and water-soaked flesh patterns? Ensure vine-health is maintained to reduce external fruit quality defects (sunburn).

Wingman is a designated short vine pollinator bred specifically for pollination of seedless watermelon crops. The vine weight is light, enabling it to sit loosely amongst the seedless
watermelon crop without competing.
The leaves are small and heavily lobed allowing maximum bee penetration and minimum competition. Prolific production of male flowers over an extended period enable transplanting flexibility. It produces small crushable fruit for increased safety when in field and is easily distinguishable during harvest.
