I purchased the Fall Seed Collection for some container gardening this autumn and have been very pleased with the results. Germination rate was fantastic and I had to do much more thinning than I usually do from store-bought seeds. The little growing guide helped with varieties I haven't grown before (hello, kohlrabi). All of my plants are hardy and healthy and I'm already enjoying the early harvests. Looking forward to maturity on the longer growers. Will be buying the Granny's kitchen garden pack for spring. Thanks so much!
I planted several varieties over the past couple years. These have been the most reliable producers so far. Averaged 10-15 lbs. one larger one about 20. Nothing remotely close to 40 lbs. that’s ok. Huge ones are a pain to break down.
I planted a whole bunch of this to attract bees and butterflies. It grows like crazy. However I protected the seed with hay because my first round died because of the hot Florida sun and lack of rain lately.
We started these indoors in January. We transplanted them twice and finally out to our raised bed (full coastal sun). The plant is massive and the tomatoes are TASTY! The best little tomatoes we have ever had. We will likely plant them in a separate bed next year since they grow to such a large size and can crowd out other plants.

Jubilee has long been one of America's most popular melons. It was introduced about 1963 by the Florida Agricultural Experiment Station. Jubilee was said to have been created by crossing together the varieties Africa 8, Iowa Belle, Garrison Hawkesbury and Leesburg.
Regular Jubilee watermelon produces melons up to 35 lbs and can be well over a 1' long. They have light green skin with dark green stripes. The flesh is red and very sweet. Disease Resistant: Tolerant to Fusarium Wilt and Anthracnose
TIP: Most watermelons love and need heat, but disease problems can arise from such hot and humid conditions. Jubilee was specifically bred to handle such problems. If you live in the Southern United States where conditions are hot and humid, this is the watermelon for you!
1979 Twilley Seed Company Catalog says about Jubilee Watermelon.... "Released by Florida AES.
