With over 65 years of experience, Pennington Farms continues to be innovative in it's farming practices. The Penningtons led the way early on  in the use of transplanting plants instead of seeds as well as planting under plastic mulch and drip tape irrigation. Another innovation is the new Pennington Red Diamond seedless.


The Pennington Red Diamond was unveiled in the spring of 2008. The Red Diamond is a seedless watermelon breakthrough combining all the most desired characteristics into one watermelon.

This new generation watermelon was developed for (ESL) Extended Shelf Life. The flesh is bright red and firm, with penatrometer readings ranging from 3-5, thus making it excellent for the processor or the cut market. Fractometer readings range from 11-12.5. The crisp sweet taste of the Seedless Red Diamond will always keep you coming back for more!

The seedless Red Diamond has a beautiful shiny dark green rind. The fruit is very solid with a smooth and slightly oval shape. The seed pips are very small and hardly noticeable. Because the Red Diamond is also very uniform, it has a reliable average weight and shape. In 45 count bins, melons will average 14-16 lbs.

With it's distinctive look, the seedless Red Diamond has become the melon of choice throughout Texas. Consumers and retailers appreciate the unique Red Diamond for it's transport and storage capabilities.

The seedless Red Diamond is a Growerís friend, a Produce Manís dream, a Cutterís Miracle, a Warehouserís king, a Processorís favorite, a Consumerís fantasy and a Competitorís nightmare all wrapped into one!
