Firm, fine texture and one of the sweetest watermelon's to ever meet your tastebuds! They keep well, once picked, if kept in a cool dark place. We've kept them for a few weeks. We especially like them because they don't mush into a container of juice once cut into cubes, like some more grainy melons might. Been our favorite for 60 years... and counting~~ :)
