Ruby is a new generation seedless watermelon. Compared to other seedless, it has a superior external appearance, better color retention and improved quality. It produces a heavy, uniform crop of oval-round fruit that mature in 85 days. The strong rind is an attractive fade resistant light-medium green with a distinctive double stripe pattern. The internal appearance is excellent; bright red flesh, well defined flesh-rind boundary and small pip size. Eating quality is superb; the flesh is very sweet, crisp and delicious.
