New early watermelon varieties under test in Cyprus

Just last week we visited Cyprus to see and evaluate our watermelon trials.

Watermelon variety ES 75133 F1 is doing very well in our tests for early spring cultivation. It is a unique hybrid watermelon of the Crimson Sweet type with a very early maturity. Harvest at the end of April. When using low plastic tunnels the variety is suitable for extra early production.

The rind has a dark green colour with green stripes. ES 75133 F1 has uniform round fruits with a weight of 5-8 kg. The flesh is very crispy with a good bite.

Please find below a short impression of our watermelon fields and some close ups of our watermelon variety ES 75133 F1.
