It never got ripe on the vine in Salmon, ID, but it ripens fine in most places.
Here's the history of Earliana and at the bottom of the page click on the ND one.

And Tania lists several other Earliana versions as well.

Hope that helps.

Carolyn, and I should mention that Glenn Drowns of Sandhill is originally from Idaho and grew crops there, some with great difficulty b'c of the weather and ended up breeding a fantastic watermelon called Blacktail Mountain which thrived there and is grown everywhere else and folks love it, me included.
