Organic Sugar Baby Watermelon - Citrullus lanatus
This organic sweet icebox watermelon, has stunning deep red flesh with an ideal size of 6” - 8.5” in diameter, with an almost black exterior! Produces early fruit, about 6 - 12 lbs each, with 1 -2 fruit per plant. The Sugar Baby is juicy, with an excellent taste profile. Its petite size and compact vines, make it perfect in smaller gardens. Its characteristic rough rind, help protect it against cracking.
We recommend planting at a 1/2” depth and space plants 12” - 18” apart. Fruit is ripe when you hear a hollow thump in it. Use a sharp knife to cut from vine.
