|'Ice Cream' is an heirloom variety of watermelon with white flesh and white seeds. The melons are round with pale green skin. It is very early to arrive at maturity, and so does well in cooler areas. Watermelons generally do best in warm climates. Cool weather will not produce good fruits, but some of the adversity of cool weather can be overcome by starting seeds early indoors, and transplanting them out at the height of summer. Plastic groundcovers are highly recommended to increase soil temperature in the spring, and rowcovers will help the crop ripen in the fall.
