gourd family, cucurbit family Citrullus lanatus

Sugar baby water melon

This variety deserves its name. It develops football-sized dark-green fruits with a crimson-coloured, juicy and very sweet flesh. The fruits mature in a mild climate even in the open land.

Sowing from the beginning to middle of April at a warm location. 2 seeds per 8cm pots. Only lightly cover with soil and keep moist and warm. In very mild climates one can bed out plantlings in the open from the 20th of May. Distances 100x100cm. Planting in the hot bed, foil tunnel or glass house assure a good yield. Nutrient-rich soil and compost advantageous
