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.

Review:

We decided to try this watermelon. It grew quickly and sent out a lot of flowers and watermelon right away. We planted 5 plants in a 35ft bed and the plants covered the entire bed. Those 5 plants gave so many watermelon that my family of 9 could not eat all of them and we LOVE watermelon. All of the watermelons that we got were REALLY BIG one watermelon weight 39lb and the rest weight 20-30lb. If you want a watermelon that produces a lot with no care choose this one. And i have to admit that these watermelons are absolutely juicy and sweet. THIS IS THE BEST WATERMELON EVER.

Review:

I decided to try watermelons after having given up a few years ago. These were the largest, sweetest melons I have ever grown. They ranged in size from 15-25 pounds. Crisp, sweet, juicy... everything you would want in a classic watermelon. We had a pretty hot summer - one heat wave of 105 for over a week. The vines and melons thrived. I've told all my gardener friends in this region to grow this keeper.

I grew 6 different heirloom watermelon varieties this year to find out which was the best. Put them in my restaurant and let everyone decide. Ali Baba was the overwhelming winner!
