Jubilee Watermelon Seeds
One of the most popular watermelon varieties grown in the United States. Introduced in '63 by the Florida Agricultural Experiment Station. This variety was originally created by crossing together the varieties Africa 8, Iowa Belle, Garrison (Georgia Rattlesnake), Hawkesbury and Leesburg. Jubilees are extremely similar to Garrison or Georgia Rattlesnake Watermelons which is a variety developed in Georgia during the 1880's. This variety has also stablized and will breed true to form. Just like Georgia Rattlesnake or Garrison, Jubilee produces a large light green watermelon with very distinct dark green stripes somewhat reminescent of a rattlesnake's markings. The watermelons have a very tough rind that is nearly an inch thick. It is an excellent commercial watermelon as it holds up amazingly well during shipping The flesh is a lovely bright red in color, has a very fine texture and a very palatable sweet flavor that is superior to most other varieties of watermelons.
