This is only on one of my watermelons and I ripped it out because im afraid the disease (if it is one) will spread. What the hell is this I've never seen these odd black/brown spots before. The vine had stopped growing (hasnt grown at all in days) so I decided to take it out.

It seems to be spreading. Urgent help please!

EDIT : I went on the aggressive. Soaked it in a dawn soap/water combo. And I also put it on the benign powdery mildew on my Pumpkins.

Hmmm....don't know much about melons. Could be leaf blight or Anthracnose?

RE: What is wrong with my watermelon?!?!

Sorry you're having problems with your watermelon! I have searched the web and can not find what it is that is wrong with your leaf. You might try taking a leaf and the picture to your local Ag extension office. They should be able to help you identify what is wrong. Also, there is a wonderful page on Facebook. It is full of members like the people here that want to help. Post your pic there and ask for help. There are people from all over the world who will weigh in. I hope you find out what is wrong and can save your watermelons. Let us know an update.
