Flesh firmness has shown to be twice as firm as standard triploid watermelons. Fruit shape is oval with deep red flesh and clear definition between the rind and the flesh. In addition it has a very small seed size. The fresh cut fruit show minimal post-processing liquid loss as compared to fresh cut fruit from standard triploid varieties.
