Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Organic Bush Sugar Baby Watermelon
Organic Bush Sugar Baby Watermelon (75-80 days)
2 gram heirloom seed package
Bush Sugar Baby is an early watermelon for those limited on space, but not taste.
This perfect little melon has only 3-4' vines and bears two 12 lb melons per plant.
Light striping, great blue-black skin with contrasting sweet, red, firm flesh.
Can be trellised.
Perfect for those with a short growing season.
TIP: Do not pick watermelons until the tendril has been brown for a week. This will ensure top flavor and sugar quality. We also quit watering them about 2 weeks before finishing. This concentrates the flavor.
