159.6 ciesielski JBD watermelon on 'Rampart' rootstock. I am pleased with how the melons are growing, they are ahead of schedule for some reason this year. I hope to get a mid June pollination, which I have never done before. I will have to try my hand at manually pollinating these. Normally the bees do it for me. The problem is that they miss all the early females. In late July and August the bees do a great job! There are so many culls, it is like picking cucumbers!!
