With Honey Island, it was love at first bite. Heron Breen of Fedco tucked a few Honey Island seeds into our hands a few years back and we were instantly smitten. We love its brilliant yellow flesh with full flavor and sticky sweetness. We appreciate its round, icebox-style 6- to 8-pound fruits, perfect for a picnic.

I once thought watermelon was a waste of garden space, when I was a girl in my father’s garden. Now, with the right varieties, I know we’ll enjoy watermelon every day of August and September.

Hope you'll join us one day for our annual Watermelon in the Dahlias Party! We grow hundreds of organic watermelon each season just for the seeds inside, so we host an all-you-can-eat watermelon feast amid thousands of flowering dahlias. It's always one of the final Saturdays in August; check our events for the full details and see you there!
