    I saw the news on TV yesterday, but right after they cut that black watermelon in , they went on to other news and didn't elaborate on that melon.

    To me, that black watermelon looked inside like a nice red and juicy melon, just like any other regular green watermelon would look.

    But what I don't understand is why pay all that money for that fruit, just to split it open on TV.

    I wonder if the seed's from that black watermelon can be planted and grown on any other part of the world , and be able to reproduce a nice sweet harvest.
