2017 Seeded Watermelon Cultivar Trial Results

— Written By Brad Thompson

For many, there is nothing better during the summer months than a good slice of watermelon. This past summer, a seeded watermelon cultivar trial was conducted in the county that evaluated 4 different seeded watermelon cultivars. These cultivars consisted of 3 that are fairly new to watermelon industry and 1 that is considered a commercial standard. The trial focused on the yield of each cultivar as well as internal fruit quality. The complete write up and results are posted here and can also be found under the Cultivar Trial heading on the Montgomery County Cooperative Extension homepage.
