Do you remember we had watermelon creeper last year (link)? This time also watermelon seeds sprouted. The very first female flower showed up in mid June… After two days, it was a pleasant surprise that a tender fruit was seen in the place of the flower!
Look at the dates; the fruit grew very fast in June. But, later on the growth stopped suddenly. Probably if I had fed the plant with more compost, it would have been larger. The plant dried in mid July. I plucked the fruit. It was very small in size. Surprisingly, this time it was dark red in colour and really very sweet!
