Organic Sugar Baby Watermelon

$3.79$12.00

75-80 days to harvest | Citrullus lanatus

 

As a girl in my father’s garden here in the Finger Lakes, I thought watermelons were difficult to grow in our short seasons. On a farm in Maine, I grew and ate my first Organic Sugar Baby Watermelon, it was so easy and it was nothing short of life-changing: Regional adaptation makes all the difference! Though our August Ambrosia is earlier, we love Sugar Baby for her sweet, juicy abundance of eight- to ten-pound perfectly round, deep green melons with rich red fruit.

To harvest even more and earlier melons, grow them under hoops and floating row cover until they flower. This allows them to grow faster while also protecting them from the voracious cucumber beetles transmitting bacterial wilt.
