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

Sugar Baby Watermelon Seeds
Citrullus lanatus. Sugar Baby(70 days)
2 gram seed package/about 40 seeds
This is just about the earliest watermelon you are going to find. Bred to fit right inside your fridge or ice chest, this watermelon is only 6-10# of bright red sweet fruit. I'm hungry already. Not only is sugar baby the perfect size, but the rind is tough enough to toss this sweet baby on ice and head to the river!
Extremely productive plant turning out loads of sweet, small organic melons perfect for the family of four. This is the small gardener's dream, where as most melons take up lots of space for just a few melons this Sugar Baby will give you loads of fruit in a small space.
Emille from the Conscious Kitchen says about Sugar Baby.... "I'm sure there are other varieties of watermelon that are still perfect at their prime, but I have not experienced such watermelon paradise as cracking open the small dark green round sugar baby and digging in to its sweet crush of fruit ever in my life."
Some of the first watermelons in the U.S. were "officially" documented in 1629 in Massachusetts. Being good Southern boys and always having watermelons at hand, but no sugar, the Confederate soldiers boiled watermelon to make sweet molasses for cooking.
