Sugar Baby Watermelon - Perfect Sweetness
The standard for small watermelons since the 1870's. Excellent short-season producer, space saver that is packed with crisp, juicy flavor. Highly productive with 6-10 lbs. fruits on vines that are only about 6' long. Usually sets about 4–6 melons per plant.
Watermelons are almost perfectly round with a very dark green to almost black rind, exceptionally sweet, deep-red flesh, small seeds, good texture and mouth-watering flavor. Smaller size is easy to fit in the refrigerator.
Watermelons originated in the subtropical parts of Africa. In the Kalahari Desert region of southern Africa, the San people used wild watermelon as an important water source during the dry season.
This delicious fruit is simply eaten by cutting into slices and eaten fresh. Creative types can carve into various shapes or use as melon balls in fruit salads. Some cultures dry, roast and eat the seeds as a snack. Watermelon juice can be processed into a syrup or even wine.
Watermelon seeds dislike cold soil. It's better to wait until the soil is warm to plant the seeds. Also, watermelons don't like to have their roots disturbed, so when thinning out seedlings in hills, cut the stems of those you want to remove, rather than pulling them out.
