Yellow Doll is, as its name implies, not a traditional red watermelon but boasts a sunny yellow flesh that adds unexpected color to salads. It’s extra sweet and crisp, and is small and round or oval. Its thin rind is green with dark green stripes. With its shorter harvest time, Yellow Doll is great for gardeners with short growing seasons, and its compact size works well for gardeners with less space to spare.
