Prolific male flower production throughout the entire crop cycle. Allows for 100% triploid population when interplanted between 3rd & 4th triploid plant. Potential for increased overall yield of triploid watermelons. Small vine does not compete with triploid plants.
Ace has long, healthy vines that are low growing to bring the male flowers into close proximity with the triploid, without creating competition. Fruit is small, grey-green and brittle. Ace flowers early enough to pollinate any seedless.
Sprawling vine with heavy flowering. Early and extended flowering duration. Pollen in the flowers is very fertile over a wide range of growing conditions. Fruit weighs 3-6 lbs. with light red flesh, and solid light green rind.
The leaves are small and deeply cut having a small surface area, giving almost no competition to the seedless plants. Sidekick blooms early and over a long period, providing pollen for an extended set.
