Date: November 14, 2019 5:00 pm (EST)

Location: Southwest Purdue Ag Center (SWPAC) 4369 N. Purdue Road, Vincennes, IN 47591

This event is a great opportunity to learn about watermelon, cantaloupe and other specialty melon production regardless if you have been growing watermelon all your life or are new to this crop.  The meeting will start at 5:00 pm with a casual discussion about this production season. We will solicit topics for the upcoming Southwest Indiana Melon and Vegetable Growers Annual Meeting, which will be held in French Lick, IN on March 13, 2020. At 6:00 pm, dinner will be served. Following the meal, we will present the variety trial results including 40 seedless watermelons, 18 personal-size watermelons and 30 varieties of cantaloupe and specialty melons.

Any grower interested in becoming a member is invited to attend the meeting. Membership dues are $15 per year and can be paid at this meeting, if they were not paid at the spring meeting in March 2019. The annual membership dues covers the registration fee for both the spring meeting in March as well as the winter meeting, and are typically due in March.

To register please call (812) 886-0198. Registration is due by Nov. 7. Any questions, please contact Wenjing Guan at
