Review:

My first time with Heirloom seeds and I was very pleased with the seeds performance. My summer was very wet. Rain, rain, and more rain. Had tons of blooms and no melons. Very discouraged; but kept looking. One time out in the garden I looked up into last seasons bean trellis and lo and behold, there were 5 (yes 5) melons hanging in my trellis. Last week we picked a 30lb watermelon that started in my old trellis. Unbelievable.

What are the pros? Sweet, high yield, traditional

What are the cons? none

Review:

As a local Farmers Market vendor, we rely on Georgia Rattlesnake for its consistently high yield, sweet taste, and 'traditional' style (with black seeds). Once they ripen, which is mid to late August in Ohio, we sell out every week to customers who describe them as "hard to carry to the car, but definitely worth it!" and some say their kids have a great time having seed-spitting contests. We are a forever fan of this variety and highly recommend it to backyard gardeners and professional growers alike.

Review:

This is my second year growing these. I grow around 20 different varieties of watermelon each year. This is one of my favorites. These reliably produce a good yield of melons in the 35-45 lb range. It is one of the best tasting red varieties I grow. Once ripe, it appears to keep longer in the field than most, so no fear of it instantly rotting the next day if you don't catch it. The melons tend to be much longer than other varieties, so sometimes it's necessary to cut it in half before it will fit in the refrigerator. Be prepared to dedicate at least an entire shelf to it unless you cut it up before putting it in the refrigerator. It appears to have some resistance to wilt because while I've had other varieties hit, none of these have been so far. These aren't the latest variety I've grown, but they're certainly not early either. For my location they're typically ripe around early to mid September - I typically plant the last Saturday in May. The skin becomes rough when ripe.

Review:

Best tasting watermelon I've tried yet. Last year was exceptionally hot in SE Kansas, but with drip irrigation my watermelon still thrived! We planted 18 hills of three different varieties, and gave away 10 times more than we ate.
