Anyone know anything about it?

Hopefully the donor from a couple of years ago can respond, if they see this.


In my search, I accidentally found "purple watermelon seeds". I believe it to be one of the worst photo-shopped images ever.

Thanks Gary...if no one clues me in about them, I’m just gonna’ plant them in the spring & see what I get!

I ran across the “purple” watermelon pics too!! They are SO bad!! Apparently, there are those poor gullible souls who believe/d that such a monstrosity exists! I’m thinking about poorly photoshopping teeny tiny donuts onto brussels sprout stalks & offering seeds for sale! *tee-hee*

Was it in the new Burpee catalog?

I received "Serendipity". Is this the bi color beefsteak or Sarandipity-the Dwarf? I think I may have seen it listed originally on the MMMM spoiler dwarf list?

Also, any info on Elbonian Hip Deep?

To the people gullible enough to buy them, I think they should get Froot Loops.

Serendipity is the indeterminate bi color.


I haven't written a description for Elbonian Hip Deep, yet. Next week, I hope.

Sigh. It's like those photoshopped pictures of blue and rainbow roses. I work in a flower shop and people want them as plants, not realizing they're photoshopped or dyed.

How exciting, on both counts. Roof top gardens are great fun. Gutter gardens work great up there.

How exciting! I hope it all comes together for you, and here’s my favorite (so far) rooftop garden: Fenway Park in Boston.
