Its name describes this melon perfectly; Sugar Baby's flesh is very sweet, and the fruit grows to 8 pounds - just right for the refrigerator. Early season variety. High in vitamins A, B, and C.
Start seed indoors 4 weeks before transplanting outdoors. Take care not to disturb roots when transplanting. Or, sow 6 seeds over a hill 9 to 12 inches tall and 2 feet across. When plants are 3 inches tall, thin by cutting to 3 plants per hill. Use a balanced fertilizer to increase yield.
Choose a site with good drainage, good air circulation and full sun. Ready to harvest when skin on underside turns yellow and when a thump with knuckles produces a hollow sound.
Ferry-Morse Seeds have been sold continuously since 1856 and are guaranteed to grow.
