Sugar Baby Watermelon
(Citrullus lanatus) Compact vines produce an abundance of conveniently sized melons. I do enjoy growing those classic, large watermelons, but I don't love having to roll the 50lb monsters back to my kitchen. For this reason, Sugar Baby is my favorite everyday watermelon-- its size makes it convenient to carry and chill in the fridge and it can be consumed in just a couple sittings. The deep red flesh is juicy, sweet and delicious. If you are looking for an easy to grow, easy to carry, delicious watermelon, Sugar Baby is a good bet. 79 days to harvest. 25 seeds/pkt.
CULTURE: Direct sow seeds outdoors 2 weeks after last frost, once soil temps have reached 70 degrees. Sow 3-5 seeds per hill with 3 to 4 feet between hills and to 8 feet between rows. Under ideal conditions germination will occur in 5-8 days. Watermelons are ready to harvest when the tendril nearest the melon has dried and the belly of the melon has turned yellow.
So far, so good! After a slow start due to a sudden cold and rainy spell, all seeds planted up, growing and looking healthy.
Planted these in pods and they sprouted within a three days. Once it gets to 70 degree nights I’ll transplant them to container bed on my rooftop. They get loads of sun and I’m in zone 7
Very good seeds. I am a happy customer.
