Claims and other disclosed information are based on our observations and/or information from other sources. Crop performance depends on the interaction between the genetic potential of the seed, its physiological characteristics, the environment, including management, and other uncontrollable factors that may alter expected performance. Triploid hybrid watermelon varieties will on occasion produce empty white seed coats or hard, dark undeveloped seeds and, therefore, are not warranted to be completely “seedless”. Statements concerning the reaction of varieties to a specific pathogen, pest or stress are based on evaluation under defined conditions. These reactions can be affected by changes in environmental and biological factors, especially new pathogen races, pest biotypes or vectors of disease agents. Therefore, we give no warranty, express or implied, for crop performance relative to the information given; nor do we accept any liability for any loss, direct, indirect, or consequential, that may arise from any cause.
