Sugar Baby Watermelon
These watermelons are the standard icebox or picnic watermelon. Productive, compact vines allow gardeners to save space. Round 6-10 pound watermelons have a very sweet flesh and dull green rind.
Sow directly into soil that's at least 70°F. For a head start or in cooler climates, start indoors 2-4 weeks before transplanting outdoors. Do not disturb tender roots when transplanting. Thin down to 2-3 plants per hill. Keep soil moist but well-drained.
