Black Diamond Watermelon Seeds

If you have memories of eating watermelon as a child, it was probably black diamond watermelon! Before the days of the man-made "seedless watermelon", we enjoyed the black diamond because the center or "heart" of these watermelons didn't have any seeds--just pure, juicy watermelon!

Black Diamond Watermelon is one of the most popular watermelon varieties among backyard gardeners. The fruit of this easy to grow watermelon is known to be bright red and very sweet and flavorful.

This watermelon variety produces good yields of large (40 to 75) lb watermelons. The tough black-green rind helps fruit from bruising and the large leaves which help prevent sunburning of watermelons.
