I am now eating a late harvested Klondike Striped Blue Ribbon watermelon...harvested in late October. I am reminded again why I like this old heirloom......it's the flavor...one of the very best I have eaten and I have eaten dozens of varieties.

It is a good melon but I definitely would no go that far. As a 1939 intro it is better than many of the older varieties, but taste wise can't compare to the the 1960's
Crimson Sweet and allsweet developed by Hall at Kansas State.

farmer, I have raised Allsweet and Crimson sweet and they are fairly good. I stick by my assessment. Probably not all Klondikes are in the class of unique taste, but I seem to get some that are. Where I am I especially get some super tasters with Raspa. I would agree that it takes the right conditions as melons are a unique work of art to get the A+ and A++ fruits.

Where did you purchase your seeds for the Klondike Striped Blue Ribbon watermelon? What varity? The Klondike Watermelon seeds I purchased this year 2012 weren't the quality of watermelons I got in 2009.

I got the seeds from Baker Creek. I grant you that some of their watermelon seeds can vary in quality.
