Aimers Organic Watermelon Sugar Baby Seed Packet
Sugar Baby is a dependable variety that produces round watermelons about 20 cm (8") in diameter that weigh roughly 4-5 kg (8.8-11 lbs). The flesh is crisp, red, sweet and juicy with very few seeds. The skin turns dark red when fully ripe. Approx. 40 seeds per pack.
Culture is very similar to cantaloupe and muskmelon. Seeds require 5-10 days at a soil temperature of 24 C (75 F) to germinate - any lower and germination will be inhibited. Sow 6-8 seeds per hill, 12 mm (1/2") deep in hills spaced 18-2.4 m (6-8') from each other. After germination thin to 3-4 plants per hill. For best quality fruit never let the plants lack for water.
