Ratings & Reviews

Watermelon- Sugarbaby

I bought these seeds and the were very successful at germinating. I transplanted them when it was warm enough and some died in the process. I had a couple of productive vines. The fruit had quite a bit of seeds which was reviewed by family as the flesh was a bit spongy. I’ll try a different variety next season

These were so easy to germinate - every seed sprouted! I'm so pleased with these seeds! They seem to be so easy to grow.

Great Germination

I have tried to grow watermelon from seeds for years with no luck. This is the first time I have ever had seeds germinate. I have several healthy plants from these seeds with a couple of fruit forming. I'm soooo excited!
