Quite Contrary Gardens

how does your garden grow?

No flowers in today’s photo!

These babies are my White Wonder heirloom watermelons ripening on the vine. This is a small, icebox-sized melon, 3 to 8 pounds. The flesh is snow white with a unique, fruity taste.

 White watermelons were developed from wild African strains and were popular in the 19th century. White Wonders are delicate and the rinds crack easily, so you’ll never find them in the supermarket. You have to grow these babies yourself or look for them at your local farmer’s market.
