WATERMELONS SUGAR BABY

Description
Sugar Baby Watermelon Seeds 2415. A dependable variety that produces round, sweet watermelons about 20 cm (8″) in diameter and weighing roughly 4-5 kg (8.8-11 lbs). The flesh is crisp, red, sweet and juicy with very few seeds. The thin hard skin turns dark red when fully ripe.

How to Grow
9-10 seed/gram. 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 1.8- 2.4 m (6-8′) from each other. Thin to 3-4 plants per hill. Never let the plants lack for water.
