Adding 1 lb. of table sugar would do it as well, without changing the flavor too much.
Should be any issue adding the watermelon at secondary. However, easiest way to do it would be ferment to finish in primary and add flavoring in the bottling bucket.
Fermenting: EdWort's Apfelwein, Mac Jack African Amber clone
Bottled: A-Z Brown Ale, MidTN Double IPA, Carter's Creek Falconer Pale Ale, Indian Brown Ale
