A great variety that has been around for a long time. All the old timers have had this watermelon in their garden once or twice. Very sweet and can get pretty big, I grew a nice 30 pounder last year! Overall its hard to beat a classic!

We have dry land grown these melons for years. They are fantastic! Crisp and soooo sweet. They get real big over our southern UT summers. My favorite!

What are the pros? taste, large, keeps forever
What are the cons? Late season
I've grown many different varieties of heirloom watermelons and this thing is as close to perfect as a red fleshed watermelon gets.
The taste is the sweetest of any of the reds I grow. While it does have seeds, it doesn't have a ton, so it's enjoyable to eat.
It lasts a _VERY_ long time both on the vine when ripe and also in the refrigerator (Which makes it much easier to avoid picking it when it's too early, or too late when it's grainy or rotten.)
These average around 30 lbs for me, though my largest was 42 lbs. It is one of the most trouble-free watermelons I've grown and is higher in production than many other melons this size. The rind gets a "rough" feel to it when it's ripe.
It is a late season watermelon, but not extremely so. If I plant the seeds in the soil in June 1st, I typically have ripe melons around mid-late September.
I've grown this with Georgia Rattlesnake which is a very good melon. Jubilee is better - sweeter, bigger (often shorter), and lasts much longer.

This summer I grew Jubilee Watermelons and had a great time growing them. They produce a good number of watermelons and are really easy to grow. Just give a alot of water and they take off. This Spring/Summer I am going to grow Jubilee Watermelons and Sugar Baby Watermelons. Please give me advice about growing both. Thanks

We are new to Baker Creek as this is the first year we have gone all heirloom. We are having a wonderful time, seeing all the seeds produce beautifully here in Texas. The first harvested Jubilee Watermelon was very tasty: sweet flavor, beautiful red flesh. Will be planting these again! Thankfully, we have 6-8 of these left awaiting harvest for more friends and family to enjoy. Planted 5-6 seeds...
