One of the most popular market melons in this area.
Easy to grow and tasty. A great old variety that has been cultivated in this area for many years.

This a large dark green, round melon. Clara Lee, Cannonball, Florida Giant seem to be selected strains of this melon. Averages 35 lbs, but can be pushed to 60 lbs through pruning. It produces well on all soils and is more suitable on heavier soils than long types. As a youth in piedmont Va, we could only successfully grow the round types of watermelon. Good flavor but not as sweet as the newer varieties.
This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
Spring Hill, Florida
Efland, North Carolina
Monroe, North Carolina
Kiawah Island, South Carolina
