WATERMELON, O'Dell's Large White
Seeds per packet ~ 25
Germination 91% (Packed for 2023)
This giant African heirloom (which we got from our friends at Southern Exposure Seed Exchange) has been traced back to an unnamed African American farmer who grew it on a South Carolina plantation in the mid-1800's. Also known as Stoney Mountain Watermelon, the fruits have pink, sweet, coarse flesh with a tender rind, light green (some say grayish) skin and white seeds that mature in 90 days. It is listed under Slow Food Ark of Taste. A truly delicious watermelon.
