90 days — 'Black Diamond' watermelon is an old standard variety that typically reaches the thirty to fifty pound range. The fruit is slightly oblong with prominent creases, and dark, almost black colored skin. The flesh is sweet, dark red in color, and has large, grayish colored seeds.

The example fruit in the photograph was harvested on the 23rd of September, and boy was it good! Each packet contains two grams, which is approximately 14 to 16 seeds.

Planting Instructions: The seeds can be directly sown in spring after the soil has warmed or started indoors four weeks before the last expected frost. Indoors, plant two to three seeds per pot, ½ inch deep, thinning to the best plant. Do not disturb roots when transplanting.

Outdoors, plant three to four seeds, ½ inch deep, in hills spaced four to six feet apart. Transplant or thin to two plants per hill. Young plants are cold sensitive and some cover protection at nights may be required. Mulch or cultivate to control weeds.
