Dixie Queen Watermelon is also known as White Seeded Cuban Queen. The original Cuban Queen was known for producing melons up to 100-pounds, but this white seeded variety, though just as sweet, produces smaller melons, only weighing in at between 30 and 50-pounds. This heirloom variety was first hybridized and registered in 1890 by Johnson & Stokes Seed Company. The slightly oblong fruits average about 12-inches across and 15-inches long and have very light green skin with dark green striations. The rind is thin, but tough, and Dixie Queen has been a popular market melon for many decades. Approximately 50 organic seeds per packet.
Jubilee Watermelon produces a watermelon grown for its hefty size and for its thick rind that substantially protects the fruit during handling, is also known for its consistently fine texture and crisp, medium-red flesh. Its sweet flavor is considered by some to be superb when compared to most other varieties. The average Jubilee watermelon weighs 40-lbs. at harvest! Approximately 50 organic seeds per packet.
Kleckleys Sweet Watermelon is also known as Monte Cristo or The Wonder Melon, which should give you an indication about its flavor and ease of growth. Having a very dark rind, sometimes irregularly mottled with slightly lighter shades, this watermelon was bred by W. A. Kleckley of Alabama in 1887, being introduced to the public in 1897. An American favorite, you won’t find this one on your supermarket shelves, though it is sure to be a hit at your local farmer’s market. With its thin rind, this heirloom watermelon does not stand up well to shipping, but makes slicing easier for the home gardener. Touted in many seed catalogs as “The finest and sweetest melon for home use”, we are sure that Kleckley’s Sweet will become a customer favorite! Approximately 50 organic seeds per packet.
Tendersweet Orange Watermelon produces an heirloom variety the bears the common light green rind with dark green markings, but with an uncommonly luscious, bright orange flesh.
