Watermelon, Nancy (Organic)
Citrullus lanatus. 90 days.
The quintessential watermelon – classic flavor and so sweet! Green striped, oval fruit with pink flesh and white seeds grow to 25 lbs. Thin rind means you can eat almost all the way to the skin, however it also means that it does not store super long or travel very well. Said to have excellent drought and disease resistance, it grows well for us in challenging conditions with no trouble. An heirloom from the 1880s, when Nancy Tate discovered it growing in a cotton field in Georgia. Our original seed was given to us by melon enthusiast Jeremiah Johnson of Lebanon, Oregon.
