This was my year year to try the Yellow Fleshed Crimson Sweet. It produced well and is the same size and shape as the regular Crimson Sweet. Markings are similar but not as vivid. Flavor and texture is very good but doesn't pull away from the crowd like the regular did upon its introduction.

An 80 day melon with the appearance of a faded Crimson Sweet. It is also known as the Crimson Sweet, Yellow . A good producer but not quite as tasty as the Orange Fleshed Tendersweet, or the OrangeGlo.
