What are the pros? Very productive, easy to grow
What are the cons? Taste was different
I grew Ali Baba last year. They were one of the most productive watermelon plants I grew. I can see why people like them so much. They are nice sized and produce a lot and are very easy to grow. I forget the weight but I think our biggest was upper 20's, maybe 27 lbs or something. I did not choose to grow these this year. This only my second year growing melons so I wanted to try ten new varieties. Next year I will grow our favorite 3 from the last two years. I will try Ali Baba again to make sure it wasn't a funky season because if I'm being honest, it is not the watermelon taste I prefer. It is good but it's a different flavor. It's hard to explain, I suggest you grow it and make your own opinion. It is well worth growing for sure! When it comes to watermelon taste the Ali Baba is on the opposite end of the spectrum from our favorite so far which is Ledmon.

Its really great kind of water melon and great taste but in fact its still widely available in Iraq , Im originally from Iraq and I know that farmers still grow it there especially in the middle and north of Iraq and you can get its seeds easily

Fantastic watermelon. I grew it on a trellis and created cloth hammocks for the melons as they came on. My biggest was around 15lbs. They were so sweet- we ate them clear out to the rind. Highly recommend.

What are the pros? Very Hardy, Great Tasting
This is a GREAT watermelon. This was our first season growing this variety (2014). It produced better than any of the other varieties I grew this year. Probably the best tasting watermelon I've ever eaten. I like to try lots of different varieties each year but this will be a staple in my garden from here on out. These were also pretty hardy as we had a wet spring and dry summer. It still put on lots of fruit and they tasted great. It's only November and I'm already missing having these in my fridge!
