Watermelon

Some of my watermelon are almost black in colour. (have been that way all along) and the others look like regular watermelons.???

Any ideas?

welcome! Question re black watermelon

Hi and welcome to the forum! Hope you find it friendly and helpful. I took the liberty of moving your question to the Fruit Growing forum, where a lot more people will see it who might know the answer.

I don't grow watermelon because I don't have the room for them and when I tried the critters ate every one, while they were still little.

I tried looking it up and all I got was this:

"A black watermelon fetched $6,100 at a Japanese auction on Friday, making it one of the most expensive melons ever sold. The 17-pound black-skinned "Densuke" watermelon drew the unusually high price for its rare color." https://www.slashfood.com/2008/06/14/black-watermelon-sells-for-6-100/

Maybe you accidentally got a rare black watermelon seed mixed in with the regular ones? :) (Just kidding, don't try auctioning it off!)
