A Seed in Profile: The Bradford Watermelon


Author(s):
Abstract:
The Bradford Watermelon is an heirloom with a classic narrative of glory, loss and revival, and prominent example of a story of North Carolina food culture over the last century. The watermelon variety was created through the exchange and crossing of seeds in the early 1800s. Asheville’s Sow True Seed is now the sole distributor of the Bradford Watermelon seeds.
