For the love of Watermelon at OTFM

You guessed it – Watermelons are now in season and available at OTFM. No other produce screams summer like Watermelon and in honor of National Watermelon Day, (August 3rd) we’ll be hosting a contest to WIN this wonderful fruit/vegetable on Saturday. Over the coming weeks, you can count on the farmers at OTFM for a variety of both heirloom and hybrid watermelon cultivars. 

Did you know, while working at Kansas State University, Charles V. Hall crossed ('Miles' x 'Peacock') x 'Charleston Gray' and in 1963 the ‘Crimson Sweet’ Watermelon was released, quickly becoming the most popular variety grown throughout the United States?
