Citrullus lanatus - 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. Produces fewer seeds than most watermelon varieties and the white seeds are thinner making them easier to ignore while eating. Said to have excellent drought and disease resistance. An heirloom from the 1880s, when Nancy Tate discovered it growing in a cotton field in Georgia.
