Homegrown Georgia Rattlesnake Watermelon

3 years ago

Omg..the name is so long..lol.. Hi everyone. It`s the end of summer but you can`t end summer without some watermelon. This beauty here is called the Georgia Rattlesnake Heirloom Watermelon. I guess it gots it`s name from the markings on the skin. And it`s heirlom meaning you can keep the seeds and grow them year after year and you will end up with the same type of watermelon. With hybrids these days, if you plant the seeds, you`ll probably get something that is weird or some kind of fruit you can`t eat. I grew this watermelon myself and I so far have harvested 3 watermelons with this one being the largest and heaviest. This watermelon here weighs at least 35 to 40 lbs and it`s so sweet. It has seeds too which brings back the good old days. Do any of you remember those good old days where watermelons used to have seeds and we would be spitting them out like nothing..lol.. I miss those days. Nowadays those hybrids aren`t that sweet sometimes and there`s no seeds. To me the hybrid ones doesn`t have a strong watermelon taste if that makes any sense. So I hope you enjoy reading and maybe try growing your own watermelon next year and see what you end up with.
