BLITZ is a diploid (seeded) watermelon in the Jubilee class, also known as a Summerfun/Candyman type with the typical New Zealand watermelon rind pattern. A strong plant with a vigorous canopy, BLITZ sets good numbers of highly uniform fruit which, in conjunction with fruit size, results in big yields. An attractive fruit either as a whole melon or cut, the internal fruit characteristics of BLITZ are very good with deep red flesh that is firm and with a thick rind which protects the fruit for shipping. Eating quality is excellent with a crisp flesh and sweet flavour.
