SPECIAL NOTICE CONCERNING WATERMELON SEED

We want to advise you that in several areas of the United States, a bacterial disease that has been named Watermelon Fruit Blotch, has caused severe damage to some crops. The causal organism and method of infection have not been definitively identified and possible methods of control are not available. Siegers Seed Company makes no claim or representation that any watermelon seed it supplies is resistant or tolerant to Watermelon Fruit Blotch. Accordingly, Siegers Seed Company, its agents and suppliers will not assume any liability for any watermelon seed sold by Siegers Seed Company. A CUSTOMER SIGNATURE IS REQUIRED TO CONFIRM AGREEMENT TO THESE CONDITIONS PRIOR TO SHIPMENT OF WATERMELON SEEDS.


VARIETY DESCRIPTION and ILLUSTRATIONS

Varietal descriptions within this catalog have been prepared as a guideline only. They are given for comparison purposes to help growers plan a crop planting program and can be expected to vary in some degree depending upon geographic location, soil type, climatic conditions, and cultural practices. The information on relative maturity expressed as "days" or "days from transplant" is given only as a guide, as the actual maturity may vary considerably with conditions. Varietal illustrations in this catalog are the result of favorable growing conditions and identical results are not guaranteed. Color illustrations may not be 100% accurate, due to color translation from the original photograph to film to print, and due to different light sources at the time the photographs were taken.
