Charleston Gray Watermelon Seeds (Citrullus Lanatus)
- Charles Frederic Andrus, a research scientist at the USDA laboratory in Charleston, developed this melon in the late 1940s to fulfill the need for a good shipping melon that could resist disease. His Charleston Grey watermelon was introduced in 1954 by the Southeastern Vegetable Breeding Laboratory.
- As soon as the vines begin to develop, apply a thick layer of mulch to control weeds and protect the melons from soil contact. Keep the soil moist until the fruit begins to grow, then water only if the soil dries out completely. Watch out for insect pests, which can be a problem. Charleston Grey is resistant to anthracnose and fusarium wilt.
