Bradford Watermelon Seed Packet Super Sweet Southern Heirloom
Each year we grow a giant garden of our favorite vegetables. Most of our favorite vegetables are old time varieties that people currently call Heirloom. It is with great pleasure that we offer up our favorites for you.
Once thought to be an extinct variety, Bradford Watermelons are back and they are absolutely delicious! This was the most important and famous melon of the South from the 1860s to the early 1900s. People used to protect these melons with deadly force, sometimes even poisoning themselves in their zeal to keep thieves away! Check out the neat youtube videos on its history! The melon fell out of favor due to its low shipping ability and it was almost lost. We are proud to be able to contribute to keeping this variety alive.
These seeds are from our most select melons and are true to parent. You will receive 10 per packet.
