NOTICe:Hybrid triploid watermelons are sterile, or true, hybrids which characteristically produce fruits with few or no true seeds. Because the absence, or relative absence, of "hard" or true seeds in the fruit of the melon is its chief distinguishing characteristic, the hybrid triploid watermelon is often referred to as a "seedless" watermelon. Despite the popular perception, hybrid triploid watermelons are not true "seedless" watermelons. The first melons to ripen in a field of hybrid triploid watermelons often contain small, vestigial seeds. In addition, certain genetic, cultural and climatic factors are known to cause the formation of empty seed coats, small, white, immature seeds and/or hard seeds in the flesh of the melons. Due to the wide variety of possible causes of hard seed or ovule formation,Hybrid triploid watermelons are not guaranteed to produce seedless fruit. Hybrid triploid watermelon production requires a high level of grower sophistication. Hybrid triploid watermelons require a pollen source and bees to serve as pollen vectors. The general rule is one pollenizer plant for every 3-4 seedless plants. Hybrid triploids also require special care for satisfactory germination. Growers are encouraged to contact University extension personnel for government publications and information concerning recommended cultural practices. Otis S. Twilley Seed Co., Inc. can also supply certain information on request. Growers are encouraged to develop expertise in growing hybrid triploid watermelons prior to instituting large-scale commercial production. B. Special limitation of warranty: All hybrid triploid watermelon seeds are sold pursuant to Otis S. Twilley Seed Co., Inc.'s standard terms and conditions of sale. Descriptions and illustrations of hybrid triploid watermelons appearing (in the seed catalog and elsewhere) represent hybrid triploid watermelons as grown under favorable growing conditions in favorable growing areas. Appearance and performance may vary in other geographic locations and under different growing conditions. Otis S. Twilley Seed Co., Inc. expressly excludes any warranty of conformity to description, illustration or sample and extends no warranty that the hybrid triploid watermelon seed sold will produce "seedless" fruit. All implied warranties, including but not limited to any implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, are expressly excluded. twilley@twilleyseed.com 73
