Watermelon Seeds - Georgia Rattlesnake

If you think about it, any variety that has been kept around for over 170 years has to been pretty darn good. The skin is light green with irregularly mottled dark green stripes that someone long ago thought looked like a "rattler". Tough skin makes it a good shipper or picnic melon. Strong grower.
