I'm just a back yard gardener, but I have tried over the last few years 10 to 11 variety's of watermelon Red, Orange and Yellow flesh melons in Westport KY. I have narrowed it down to kinds of melons, Jubilee and Mountain sweet yellow, they are both very sweet and juicy, both have exceeded my expectation in taste, Both will produced 2 or more per vine, everyone we have given watermelons to have raved on the taste and sweetness, Both variety's have produced melons over 41 lbs. When we would cut open ether kind the water just pour out, but everyone who tasted the Mountain sweet yellow wanted more, we couldn't grow enough of them. If you have never tried Mountain yellow you should once, The flesh on the yellow is more frim than the red, Both are ease to grow, If I had to rate both form 1 to 10 each would get 9 or 10
