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.

California Master Gardener handbook recommends Sugar Baby for California.
Recommended by the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. "These seed varieties have been tested and proven resilient in the Florida backyard garden."
I purchased the Fall Seed Collection for some container gardening this autumn and have been very pleased with the results. Germination rate was fantastic and I had to do much more thinning than I usually do from store-bought seeds. The little growing guide helped with varieties I haven't grown before (hello, kohlrabi). All of my plants are hardy and healthy and I'm already enjoying the early harvests. Looking forward to maturity on the longer growers. Will be buying the Granny's kitchen garden pack for spring. Thanks so much!
I planted several varieties over the past couple years. These have been the most reliable producers so far. Averaged 10-15 lbs. one larger one about 20. Nothing remotely close to 40 lbs. that’s ok. Huge ones are a pain to break down.
I planted a whole bunch of this to attract bees and butterflies. It grows like crazy. However I protected the seed with hay because my first round died because of the hot Florida sun and lack of rain lately.
We started these indoors in January. We transplanted them twice and finally out to our raised bed (full coastal sun). The plant is massive and the tomatoes are TASTY! The best little tomatoes we have ever had. We will likely plant them in a separate bed next year since they grow to such a large size and can crowd out other plants.
