I don't know about you but I LOVE the first watermelon of the season. We succession plant watermelon so that we can have multiple crops of them coming out of the beds. The first ones to mature look like they will be "peace." This is a small yellow fleshed watermelon. Not far behind is "Orangeglo." This watermelon is touted as one of the most flavorful and best for you. As the name implies it is an orange fleshed watermelon. Some of the other varieties we have in the ground are "sweet dakota rose", "verona", "Ali baba", "crimson sweet" and "georgia rattlesnake."
The most fun you can have with a watermelon is to pick it straight off the vine.....hold it high over your head......let it fall to the ground.....and let the kids have at it, scooping the still sun warmed flesh into their mouths. It makes for a messy treat but it is a summer time tradition for us at 47 Daisies.......
