Sugar Baby Watermelon

Watermelon

Going on a picnic or to a cookout?  Take a Sugar Baby Watermelon along!  They are a smaller variety and fit in the refrigerator pretty well.  They are ready to pick when the rind is almost black.  When you cut into a  Sugar Baby, you will be greeted with sweet, juicy, red-orange flesh.  They do have small dark brown seeds similar to apple seeds.  Plant after danger of frost has passed. Side-dress with nitrogen when vines begin to run. Watermelons mature in 80-100 days from seed (Sugar Baby – 85 days). Young transplants are typically 14-21 days old.  Sugar Baby melons average 8-12 pounds.
