Above is from a photograph of one of my fields of this melon. The yield was 4500 melons per acre weighing about eighteen pounds each or over 600 crates per acre. This variety of melons sold for about 2.50 per crate on the Eastern markets and this is evidence that they are real money makers. Some are so optimistic as to believe they will rival the cantaloupe in a few years in number of cars which may be profitably marketed. Winter Queens are sometimes wrongly called Black Seeded Icecream and as such a large acreage was grown in Washington where about 200 cars were sold at big prices by Japanese growers who would not tell where the seed could be obtained. Winter Queens are nearly round nearly white with narrow pale green stripes. The seeds are black and small. The flesh deep red very firm stringless sweet and of excellent quality. Ripen in about the same length of time as Kleckley Sweet but remain solid and of good quality two or three months and may be kept until Christmas. They should be very profitable to ship South after southern melons are gone but the weather is warm and the appetitie for watermelon lingers. Burrells Select Winter Queens have very thin tough rinds. The flesh is sweet down to the last red portion. The seeds are bedded firmly in the flesh-no cavity around them to allow them to shake and cause decay. I wish every one of my customers who can grow watermelons to plant some of the Winter Queens. Price-(5c per pkt.) (15c per oz.) (40c per lb.) (1.45 per lb.) (1.35 per lb. In 10-lb. Lots) (1.20 per lb. In 100-lb. Lots and up) prepaid.

One of the latest as well as the hardiest of the radishes and is considered an excellent sort for winter use. Roots oblong black of very large size and firm texture.

The only melon that can be kept until Christmas. The color of the flesh is a deep lemon yellow and the outer skin is a dark green marked with yellow. The quality is delicious having a rich spicy flavor similar to Pineapple that is not possessed by any other melon. In the North these melons rarely ripen on the vines so they must be picked off in the Fall before frost and stored in some cool dry and dark place where even half grown ones will ripen gradually.
