Scaly Bark Watermelon

1 Review | Write a Review
This truly historic variety was listed in the1885 Retail Catalogue of the notable James J.H. Gregory, who said, "Skin somewhat rough, as the name denotes. Looks outside somewhat like Phinney's. Remains longer than usual in eating order after gathering." This melon remained popular for many years, especially in the south. We are glad to see this great melon again in gardens. Named for the mottled, light and medium green rind that appears much like tree bark, very unique looking. The flesh is bright red, sweet and crisp; it also keeps very well, so you can enjoy melons over a long season.

What are the pros? Great flavor

What are the cons? None


Just harvested the first one & it was wonderful. 20 lbs., very sweet and flavorful. Not many seeds. Wife said it was the best watermelon she ever had & the kids raved about the flavor. No problems with insects, etc. Very pleased with it.
