Excellent watermelon
Reviewed By: Dave (Westfield, MA)
I have grown these watermelons with excellent success in the past with numerous fruits of great size (6-7 pounds). This year, voles have found the vines and chewed off a lot of the vines a few feet after the forming melons. Instead of averaging 4 melons per vine I averaged between one and two. To my surprize, the remaining melons got huge by Sugar Baby standards. Between 10 and 14 pounds! If you grow this melon, try pruning the vines after a few melons start forming. I will do this in all future plantings. It will hurt to do it, but you will be rewarded with larger than average watermelons that are sweeter and tastier than any other melon you can grow.

Surprise
Reviewed By: Robin Scott (Hitchins, Kentucky)
I got a nice surprise this year after drought took my melons last year. I covered the garden with grass clippings this spring to keep down weeds. Much to my surprise, the Sugar Baby watermelons came back with a vengeance and are winding through the corn rows full of blooms. I'm looking forward to tasting them.

Reviewed By: Betty (The Colony, Texas)
First time to try watermelon and we already have 10 melons growing on 3 separate plants. They mature very quickly. The biggest one is softball size after a week. I only hope that we can pick it at the right time for the best flavor.

Great Melon
Reviewed By: Mark (Tribune, kansas)
I live in western Kansas where it is hot and dry. I have planted sugar babies for several years, and have never missed a crop. They are very sweet, and just right to fit in the frig.

Great
Reviewed By: Jason Jones (New Church, Virginia)
I have planted four of these melons. I had no problem growing them from seed. I planted two on a trellis and two on the ground. The two on the trellis have so far produced thirteen melons and the two on the ground have produced five. Clearly the trellis wins. I have already picked two from the trellis and they are delicious. I highly recommend this melon. Especially if using a trellis.

THE BEST WATERMELON EVER!
Reviewed By: Danny Grogg (Aloha, Oregon)
"Before my Grandma died she was always telling me, ""If you want to grow a watermelon here in NW Oregon, try to grow a Sugar Baby!"" and that is exactly what I did. And once again, Grandma was right. It grew very vigorous and produced 6 to 7 7 Pound fruits. This watermelon I Highly recommend!"
