Sugar Baby Watermelon, Citrullus lanatus ‘Sugar Baby’, is a very sweet melon that does not require the space of larger varieties. Watermelon ‘Sugar Baby’ is a 10 to 20 lbs. melon that is firm, sweet, and has red/orange flesh with small, dark brown seeds. The thick rind turns from dark green to almost black when mature.

Growing ‘Sugar Baby’ Watermelon is easy and this early maturing variety provides abundant melons. ‘Sugar Baby’ Watermelons are popular, small, round and sweet, dark skinned watermelons, perfect for summer treats.

The pink flesh is mouth-watering, flavorsome and not too seedy, while the rind is quite tough and resists cracking. Watermelons prefer well-drained, sandy loam with a pH of 6 to 6.8. They don’t want wet feet, and regular, but average, water will do.
