Watermelon – Sugar Baby

Approximate Seed Quantity: 10

A sweet tasting smaller variety. This early and productive fruit has sweet, juicy, medium red flesh with a thin hard rind. Weighing anywhere from 3.5-5.5kg the fruit grow to around 20cm across. A good choice if space is an issue as can be trained up a trellis, is faster to ripen in a short summer and is drought resistant. Can be grown outside if given a warm, sunny and sheltered position.
