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.
