|'Pink Ice Cream' is an heirloom variety of watermelon with white seeds and pink flesh. The skin is pale green, and the melons are round. This variety comes to maturity early, making it good for short-season 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.
