My Watermelon Plant

ericj12September 15, 2010

so, my watermelon has been doing great and all except for the past like 3 weeks, it looks like its starting to die. and i was wondering if it was from a fungus infection or something of that nature.

Watermelons are annual plants and will die naturally after they fruit.

I doubt your season is over in south Florida-
Google (images): fungus on watermelon leaves-

If "alternaria" looks familiar, find a garden fungicide FAST!

An annual is an annual, no matter the location or season. That's how you know when watermelon is ripe, when the vines die.
