This Oh So Sweet Watermelon came to SSE from Virdie Smith of Gladwater, Texas. The highly productive plants bear many medium sized fruits with striped rinds and a high sugar content.
It is possible that the watermelon originated in Africa and that it was cultivated in the Nile Valley as early as the 2nd millennium BCE and is mentioned in the Bible.
Later the watermelon was brought to India and China before being brought to Europe. It was brought to North America by European colonists and African slaves
