Georgia Rattlesnake Watermelon Seeds Non-GMO, Organic, Heirloom B25

  • Sale
  • Regular price $2.49

Southern heirloom variety has been grown and loved by generations of gardeners and is still seen in the supermarket today. The large, oval fruits average 25-45 lbs.—and some can grow as large as 75 lbs. The fruits are as beautiful inside as they are on the outside. They have a sweet, firm, bright rose flesh and beautifully patterned light and dark green "rattlesnake" markings on their skins. The skins are thick, so they hold up well for shipping, storage or taking to a picnic. Sometimes called the Georgia Rattlesnake Watermelon, it's one of the oldest heirloom watermelon varieties
