Early varieties are usually with compromise taste.
Full taste varieties are always mid late and late. The tastiest from Soviet/Russian watermelon varieties is Kholodok.
It is the king of farmer markets here in the late September-October. They come from the South of Russia (Astrakhan, Volgograd and Kuban regions).

A good keeper with a great skin color and a very sweet pinky-red flesh.
Like it very much and always waiting for autumn time because of Kholodok.
