Indiana Watermelon and Melon Variety Trials

Indiana is one of the major watermelon and cantaloupe producing states. Variety selection based on yield, disease resistance, and fruit quality is some of the critical decisions in production. Watermelon and melon variety evaluations are conducted at Southwest Purdue Agricultural Center in Vincennes, IN every year. Variety trial reports and presentation slides at our grower meeting can be found on this website. If you have questions about this trial or if you are interested in entering varieties into our trial, please contact Wenjing Guan (
