How come Black Diamonds aren't grown commercially any more? I can never find one in the markets, or even at the Farmer's Market. There is one of similar shape that they grow, but they will admit that it is not a Black Diamond.

They're too heavy to handle safely is my guess.

The reason you cannot find Black Diamonds is shelf life. Unlike other commercially grown water melons Black Diamonds must be consumed shortly after picking. I was told by my local farmers market manager they could not afford to buy the melons only to throw half of them away as they were fit for consumption.
