Details

"Sugar Baby" is right -- this compact watermelon is sweetly mouthwatering. The high-producing plants make small, bowling-ball-like fruit bursting with sweet flavor. What's good about the size (and likeness to sporting equipment) is that this variety will not have to fight for space in your icebox or your garden, unlike other larger varieties. Picnic-perfect, small-space-taker, big flavor: Sugar Baby has it all.
Number of Seeds 30 seeds
Spacing in Row 3 to 5 feet
Spacing Between Rows 5 to 8 feet
Planting Depth 1 inch
Days to Germination 5 to 10 days
Days to Maturity 85 days
Height at Maturity 12 to 24 inches
Width at Maturity 4 to 5 feet
Start indoors 2-3 weeks before last frost or direct sow beginning 2 weeks after last frost. Like all watermelons, Sugar Babies enjoy heat, and the drier the conditions the sweeter the fruit. When to harvest? When the tendril nearest fruit has browned; when the spot where watermelon touches ground is deep yellow; and when tapping the watermelon produces a hollow, drum-like resonance.
