About Us / John Brown Melons History: 5th Generation melon grower.My great great grandad John C. Brown grew started growing melons when he bought a sand farm in 1876. His son John L. Brown expanded the melon farm and developed the now world famous John Brown watermelon. His melon is extremely sweet and crisp and had some resistance to what they called blight at the time.My grandfather Lawrence A. Brown was one of the first growers in the midwest to grow seedless melons and my dad Lawrence R. Brown continued the tradition of only growing the sweetest melons. I have built on this solid foudation to grow what many feel are the best tasting melons in the world.Try one for yourself!
