Ledmon Watermelon

95% of 100
Selected best tasting watermelon in our trials a few years ago. A Renowned watermelon developed in S.C. by J.E. Lednum in the early 20th Century. Mr. Lednum obtained this variety by crossing Stone Mountain with Kleckley’s Sweet. Lednum’s name was misspelled by a county Board of Agriculture employee in a 1938 pamphlet, and the name has stuck. Slightly oblong fruit has a thin rind which makes shipping this fabulous melon nearly impossible, and so has been grown exclusively as a “family melon” for generations. The pink-to-red fleshed melons sometimes reach 40 lbs., and are claimed by some to be “the sweetest melon grown.” A treasure
