I often visit the Giant watermelon growers club facebook page but I am not a member of facebook, so I can't comment there. I read of one guy having his melon stolen from a community garden. Melons are like a magnet, especially if they are being grown in a spot that can be seen by the public. The Carolina Cross variety has that classic watermelon look to it and because of that it is a prime target of thieves and vandals. If my melons were under such pressure from the outside world I would consider planting a hybrid Carolina Cross x Jumbo Black Diamond or a straight up Jumbo Black Diamond. Most people (especially thieves) will not recognize them as melons. Plus they can grow huge. It is only a matter of time before we see them do 250, 275, and beyond 300 . Below is a picture from last year of my 203.
