Watermelon Sugar Baby
Sugar Baby is a short-season watermelon, perfect for the compact growing season we have in most of the country. Known as an "icebox" watermelon, meaning the fruit will fit into a regular fridge, the size of the fruit is convenient as well, measuring 8" across and typically weighing around 10lb. Delicious and juicy sweet, this variety also boasts lots of meat and few seeds. Great pick!
Seeding Instructions - Start indoors in late April or plant directly into a sunny garden in May after last frost, can take up to 7 days to germinate. Plant seedlings in rows with 3' between the plants or clump a few plants together in a hill.
Growing On & Harvest - Watermelon vines grow vigorously, keep plants evenly moist. Fertilize with veggie food every two weeks and bone meal once a month. Harvest in approximately 70-75 days.
