Citrullus lanatus. We found these melons being dry-farmed in the Manzano Mountains, southeast of Albuquerque. They are likely a type of the popular Charleston Grey watermelon released in the 1950s. Elongated fruits are 10-20 inches with a pale red, sweet flesh. Very tasty! Contents: ± 15 seeds (1.5 g).
