Watermelon Georgia Rattlesnake
Georgia Rattlesnake is said to have been developed in the 1830s. If you think about it, any variety that has been kept around for over 170 years has to been pretty darn good. Crisp, sweet and juicy. A real favorite with the kids.
The skin is light green with irregularly mottled with dark green stripes that someone long ago thought looked like a "rattler". I think we were drinking too much watermelon wine, but hey it is cool looking! The flesh is bright scarlet, crisp and very sweet. Strong grower.
