The easiest watermelon I have ever planted. Set it and forget it. Well, almost. I am a backyard gardener and space is at a premium. I did not want to commit too much space for the Sugar babies so I planted 4 seedlings in close proximity and late nature do the rest. Every few days I made certain the vines were not wandering too far into the lawn on the right or to my Cuke's on the right. It was sad but eventually I had to cull the heard. That left me with 7 viable melons to take to maturity. Each one more perfect or equally perfect as the next. This fruit will ripen fully leaving a thin rind and more sweet pink flesh to enjoy. Also, you buy 1 pack of these seeds and you will NEVER have to buy another. These are a must even for beginners.
