Dixie Queen Watermelon
- Customer Reviews (0)
Dixie Queen watermelons are descended from Cuban Queen, a very old heirloom introduced by Burpee in 1891. Cuban Queen melons have a long history, once well known as the leading shipping melon in the United States; seed companies marketed this watermelon as reaching weights from 75-100 lbs. Dixie Queen, a slightly smaller melon, has the same sweetness and has been popular in American gardens since before 1935.
