Dixie Queen is another classic watermelon variety that features sweet and juicy flesh, and an attractive striated rind. Dixie Queen also tends to produce heavy yields of watermelons weighing in the 20 – 30 pound range. A round to oblong variety, Dixie Queen is an excellent choice for an early season watermelon.
Watermelons grow best in warm weather and sandy soils. Make sure their trailing vines have plenty of space and let your melons enjoy the warm summer sun for delicious, sweet harvests!
