We ship numerous varieties of watermelons year round including Fiesta
and Sangria, seedless, yellow meat, orange meat, and icebox melons.
Our melons are offered in bulk, bins, or cartons with PLU numbers.
For the 2011 season
Jackson Farming Company will continue to grow specialty melons such as Honeydew, Sprite Melon, Galia, Piel de Sapo, and Magenta.
Our cantaloupes, predominately Athena variety, are shipped in bins
and cartons from May through September. We grow all of our various
melon and cantaloupe crops on black plastic using drip irrigation. Our cantaloupes are brushed and washed in a clorinated water bath. For more on this system visit our operations page.
This season we will again offer the sprite melon. These new Sprite Melons
have a white, fleshy meat with a unique blend of pear, honeydew and
watermelon flavors. JFC is one of only a few growers offering this
North Carolina developed fruit.
during the month of July through September, all crops are pre-cooled
and shipped with in 24 hours to ensure taste and quality.
