This delightful Red Jubilee Watermelon is so yummy that you may
never get to taste it chilled—we've been eating it straight from the vine all
summer, and once you try that scrumptious crisp sweet red flesh and succulent
bite, you may not be able to make it to the fridge, either.
Just 6 to 7 pounds, these merrily striped oblong fruits are the
perfect size for the icebox and make one generous or two average-sized
servings. No more sawing away slabs from a 25-pound fruit while the fridge
fills up with sticky juice. They mature earlier than many other varieties and
are borne very abundantly on vigorous "semi-upright" 1.5 feet high
and up to 2 feet wide. If you love watermelon, Red Jubilee is the one you want
for a summer of great eating.
Red Jubilee was judged superior in flavor and texture, as well
as ease of growth and early maturity. This is a super easy-to-grow variety that
new gardeners will be successful with and old gardeners will fall upon with
joy. The flavor is incomparable—you'll simply never be able to eat another
supermarket watermelon once you taste Red Jubilee.
Maturing in late summer, Red Jubilee is a delight in the
vegetable garden. Give it room to ramble and set masses of yummy fruit.
