The Black Diamond watermelons are back at the Lucas Brothers farm stands! The Lucas brothers operate several farm stands in the Dayton area, offering produce from their generations-old farm in the Sugarcreek Township/Washington Township area.
The Lucas Brothers' sweet corn is tender enough to eat raw (seriously). Lucas Brothers' farm stands offer a wide selection of produce bursting with summertime flavor: plump red tomatoes, tender string beans, cucumbers, baby potatoes (red and yellow), cantaloupes, onions, peaches, green and yellow squash and more. The star of the show, however, is their Black Diamond watermelons.
Actually an extremely dark forest green, the melons appear black on the outside, with sweet, red, interior “seedless” fruit. There is the occasional seed, as happily, these are not GMO melons, but a result of the Lucas’ growing and harvesting process which minimizes seed quantity.
Lucas Brothers farm stands are open daily from 10-6 or until they sell out, but the farm stands will be around only until mid- to late-September, so hurry up and find your nearest stand!
Lucas brothers’ farm stands are in Beavercreek at Grange Hall Road and North Fairfield Rd, on 741 in West Carrollton near Meijer’s, behind the Wal-Greens near State Route 725 and Wilmington Pike in Centerville, and across from the Subway in the shopping center at Marshall and Stroop Roads in Kettering.
