History:
The Watermelon Black Diamond has a rich history dating back to the late 19th century. It was originally developed by a farmer named Charles Fredric Andrus in the late 1930s, who worked tirelessly to create a watermelon variety with superior flavor and appearance. The Watermelon Black Diamond quickly gained popularity for its exceptional taste and striking appearance, becoming a favorite among growers and consumers alike. Its legacy continues to endure, making it a beloved choice for home gardeners and commercial growers seeking top-quality watermelons.

Culinary Uses:
Watermelon Black Diamond is prized for its sweet, juicy flesh and refreshing flavor. Whether enjoyed fresh on a hot summer day, juiced for a cooling beverage, or added to fruit salads for a burst of sweetness, this watermelon variety never fails to delight the taste buds. Its large size makes it perfect for sharing at picnics and gatherings, while its deep red flesh adds a vibrant pop of color to any dish or beverage it graces.

Growth Habit & Planting Instructions:
As an indeterminate variety, Watermelon Black Diamond vines will continue to grow and produce fruit throughout the growing season. Plant seeds directly into fertile, well-drained soil once the danger of frost has passed and the soil temperature has warmed to at least 70°F (21°C). Provide ample space for the vines to sprawl, spacing plants 4-6 feet apart in rows or hills. Mulch around the base of the plants to retain soil moisture and suppress weeds. Regular watering is crucial, especially during hot, dry periods, to ensure the development of juicy, flavorful fruits. With proper care and attention, you can enjoy a bountiful harvest of delicious Watermelon Black Diamond all summer long.
