'Sugar Baby' watermelon produces small, 8 to 10 inch, round, dicebox, heirloom watermelons that are 6 to 10 lbs with a nearly black rind when ripe. A standard picnic staple since it was introduced in 1959. Crisp, juicy, deep red-orange flesh, small black seeds, and incredibly sweet, rich flavour. Mildew resistant. 80-90 days. Mighty Melons grafted melons are hand grafted onto super strong rootstock which provides greater disease resistance, greater cold tolerance (so melons start growing faster in the spring), and great yield. Mighty Melon grafted plants usually produce 2-3 times more fruit than ungrafted plants, a difference that is especially large for heirloom varieties which do not always offer high yields.
