90 days from direct-sowing the seed; 75 days from transplanting seedlings. A quick-growing, absolutely delicious watermelon you must taste to really appreciate, Shiny Boy is a must-have for the vegetable garden! These 20-pound melons consistently win taste tests, boasting a "sweet tropical" flavor (to quote the AAS judges!) that out-satisfies all others. And as if this weren't enough, the yields on this vigorous, healthy plant are terrific!

Named for its glossy, smooth striped rind, Shiny Boy takes off like crazy, yet this vining plant won't sprawl all over the place, and can even be grown vertically if given support for its giant fruit! It reaches 18 inches high and about 12 feet long, setting huge melons every step of the way. If you want to start the plant early indoors (recommended for climates with very short growing seasons), begin it 4 weeks before last frost and keep the seeds and seedlings nice and warm. The Bio Dome is best, but you can wrap the seedling flat or peat pot in plastic to keep in the warmth if need be. Don't transplant until the garden soil is nice and warm!

Shiny Boy boasts very dark red flesh with the perfect blend of sugar and crunch. Wonderfully aromatic, it offers an old-fashioned burst of flavor that we associate with grandmother's vegetable garden -- rich, lasting, and authentic! You will love it.

Expect heavy yields on this plant, and if planting more than one, space them about 8 to 10 feet apart. Shiny Boy is about to become your first choice in watermelons, so get those taste buds ready! Pkt is 25 seeds.

Superior Germination Through Superior Science

Park's Superior Seeds Park Seed's humidity- and temperature-controlled seed storage vault Park Seed offers some of the highest-quality vegetable and flower seeds available in the industry, and there are a number of reasons for this.

First of all, we have humidity- and temperature-controlled storage, and we never treat any of our seeds with chemicals or pesticides. Nor do we ever sell GMO's (genetically modified seeds), so you always know the products you're buying from us are natural as well as safe for you and the environment.

Superior Standards - University Inspected

Testing seeds against minimum germination standards To make sure we are providing the best seed product possible and that our customers will get the highest number of seedlings from every packet, we conduct our own germination testing and have quality-control measures in every stage of our seed-handling operation. We hold ourselves to standards that are at or above federal and state standards, including testing specific crops more frequently than recommended by federal guidelines. And in order to maintain our organic certification, we welcome Clemson University to inspect us annually to make sure our organic seeds, which are stored and processed separately, are being handled properly.

Hand Packed By Experienced Technicians

Park Seed has been handling and packing vegetable and flower seeds for 145 years, a history that has given us a great understanding of how each variety should be cared for and maintained throughout every step of theprocess, from collection to shipping.

When packing our seeds, the majority are actually done by hand (with extreme care!), and we often over-pack them, so you're receiving more than the stated quantity.

The Park Seed Gold Standard

Park Seed's exclusive Fresh-Pak gold foil seed packets And many of our seeds are packed in our exclusive Fresh-Pak gold foil packets, which are lined to keep moisture out, so the seeds stay fresher for longer. We carefully pack very tiny or fragile seeds in crush-proof vials to ensure safe delivery to your home. Some of the small seeds are also offered as "pellets" (have a clay coating) to make sowing and growing easier.

When it comes to the kinds of seeds we offer, we are constantly seeking something new and provide many unique and hard-to-find varieties from all around the world. Our on-staff horticulturists are ready and available to share their expertise to help you with the success of these seeds, so you can grow a beautiful and productive garden!

One of the best tasting watermelons I've ever had. I will definitely grow it again. I live in the Midwest and it grew fast and huge without leaf diseases. There was only 1 melon on the vine so next time I'll put in more plants.I wouldn't trellis this melon though, it's way too big and heavy. But definitely try these melons. They are the best!
