Our favorite watermelon! We introduced this fine variety about 10 years ago after we were sent seed by Aziz Nail, an Iraqi gentleman who had collected this fantastic variety in Iraq. It is now nearly impossible to get seeds from this ancient country whose people have lost much of their genetic heritage in the long, bloody war. Now our corporate agriculture has been "kindly" suggested to native farmers who are losing thousands of years of plant breeding work. The 12-30 lb melons have hard light-green rinds that make them perfect for shipping and storage; the light color makes them resistant to sun burning. Plants are large, vigorous and give heavy yields of oblong fruit which do well in many conditions. The flavor is superb, being very sweet and luscious; and the texture is very crisp. This is a best seller and is a favorite of Dr. Amy Goldman and featured in her book "Melons for the Passionate Grower". Ali Baba has received much acclaim online "as the best tasting watermelon," and it will forever win a spot in any melon lover's heart.

What are the pros? very sweet, good size

What are the cons? none

Review:

Just tasted my first one . Great tasting watermelon and fairly easy to grow, be sure to keep the weeds out. Start seed early in season and transplant when weather warms. Plenty of sun, some water, a little fertilizer and a few months are all you need to grow these summer treats. Be patient for them to ripen on the vine and give them plenty of space to grow.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, large melons

What are the cons? hard to tell when ripe

Review:

Melons have good flavor, easy to grow for our climate in the north. Very good yield of mostly large melons. Mine were 20-30 lbs each with very few tiny melons.
