Officers from FAMA say we are the only organic watermelon producer in the country. They should know, since they visit almost all farms in Malaysia in efforts to upgrade farming methods to meet international marketing requirements.
We sell our watermelon at only one shop, Fine Organic Gallery at No. 103, Jalan Aminuddin Baki, Taman Tun Dr. Ismail, 60000 Kuala Lumpur.
The owner is Mr. Ng (picture below), and the phone number is 03 7727 6044
Here's his shop:

I love watermelons and just cannot find organic ones.
So we decided to grow our own.
Watermelons need sandy soil and plenty of water.
Watermelons on the way.
Almost ready for harvest. So far, no loss to insects and disease due to our sprays of Teh Qi and herbs.
Our first watermelon
Beautiful color and juicy; shared by Alternative Mom and her family with us.
Next, watermelon on raised beds:
If successful, we will go commercial as the market have very little and inconsistent supply of organic watermelons.
