Nothing says summer like the watermelons we grew up eating in Georgia! The downside: spoiled by Georgia melons, we took a while to overcome our snobbery toward Midwestern-grown melons! Finally, we set about to see if we could grow decent watermelons in Indiana, and we have been pleasantly surprised!
Here is an assortment of watermelons we have grown in Southern Indiana, most with good or even excellent results -- although some of these varieties would do better in a hotter climate, and some would do well even further north.
We have chosen these varieties in part for their rarity -- with the pressing need to preserve genetic diversity, why grow what everyone else is growing?
And, remember when you thought tomatoes were just red? We also want to help popularize the entire color spectrum of watermelons, so this collection includes 4 reds, but also 3 yellows, an orange, and a rare white-fleshed melon. All delicious summer fun!
You may purchase any of the individual varieties, or try our Rare Watermelon Mix, an assortment of 25 seeds including at least four of these great melons.
Minimum 10-20 seeds.
Our garden seeds, yarns, and nuts make perfect gifts in synergy with our shared goals of environmental protection, sustainability, and food security.
Consider our wide range of heirloom vegetable, herb, and flower seeds as holiday gifts this year ~ grow your own and promote genetic diversity!
