Best-Tasting Watermelon

Discover this Best-tasting watermelon that came and developed from a grower at Known-You Seed, Taiwan. 

Julius Barcelona is holding a fruit of Hain Beauty, which is considered
the best-tasting watermelon variety developed by the late Wun-Yu Chen, the founder and principal breeder of Known-You Seed of Taiwan.

Hain Beauty is one of several varieties under experiment for their adaptability to local conditions at the Known-You Philippines experimental farm in Alcala, Pangasinan.

Barcelona says that the pink flesh is very fine-textured, juicy, sweet, and with a very unique flavor.

Fruits (about 7 kg each) are harvestable 75 to 90 days after sowing. With
Julius is KVSS Sairam, president of Prathista Industries in India, who
visited the Philippines to introduce the so-called third generation fertilizers that are claimed to be effective and economical to use.
