Melon Acres watermelon is summer in a slice
Ripe, red, and sticky-sweet watermelon are available beginning around July 15. Our season lasts through the end of September, providing six to eight weeks of sweet crimson treats for your customers. Our watermelons are available in both traditional and seedless varieties as well as mini watermelons!
Our seedless watermelons are packaged in attractive 2 ft. graphic bins which function as their own display. Bins contain 35-65 of our premium quality watermelons. Each individual Seedless comes with a PLU sticker already attached. All you have to do is remove the top of the bin and start selling! Our seeded watermelons are packed in 3 ft. bins.
Melon Acres Premium Watermelon are packed using modern packing equipment to ensure quality and product uniformity. Care is also taken to shade melons before packing to prevent unsightly sun scald.
