I planted a watermelon plant a few months back. It has taken over my garden!
It is a Sugar Baby Watermelon.
So … they will be small. I read on-line that they will be about 10 inches in diameter and you harvest them when the stem is dried.
The first few melons that developed turned completely black and fell off the vine. They were about 1″ in diameter.
I thought “Oh Great” … Googled it and read that the soil might have problems. But then other melons were getting bigger, so I didn’t worry about it too much. My soil is definately not great. It is very hard and has a lot of clay in it.
Here’s one that is about the size of a softball.
I love watching things grow! I can’t wait to try my watermelons!
