White Sugar Lump Watermelon

We at last have a limited supply of seed for this very rare melon. The pale flesh is a creamy white color with a light, refreshingly sweet taste. Fruit weigh around 5-10 lbs each and ripen early. It was carried by the Henry Fields Seed Company in the 1950's and 1960's, and in 1956 they said "Sweet as sugar, that's why we call them Sugar Lumps." They offered these in three colors: red, yellow and white. Thin-striped rind.

Review:

This is a very hardy vine that can survive the New Mexican heat like a champ with a bit of shade. Planted them in starters and the seedling survived a windstorm that toppled my greenhouse. The vine grows fast and the watermelons grow very quickly. Beautiful vine! Definitely going to grow them next year too!

Review:

I grew this for the first time this year. It is a pretty watermelon with sweet flavor and it also has a nice texture. It is only July 24th and I am in zone 6 so I would say it is a pretty early melon. I am growing 4 varieties this year and I definitely plan to grow this one again next year.

Review:

This is the first year I've had a garden and the first time, obviously, that I've grown melons. I bought four varieties (Eden's Gem, a honey dew, Orageglo, and the White Sugar Lump) and this one has been my favorite. It was the first one to produce a ripe melon and has the best taste. I can't really comment on it's ease of growing since I don't have much experience beyond this year. I did have a lot of problem with cucumber beetles and mildew with it being such a wet year. The Eden's Gem and my honey dews were killed completely while the Sugar Lump has hung in there really well. It does seem to be a bit less resilient than the Orangeglo which produced extremely long hardy vines and foliage. I'm not sure what's happened with the reviewers I've seen here and elsewhere who say that these melons don't have much flavor. I honestly think it's the best melon I've ever tasted and one of the sweetest.

Review:

Grew these in a greenhouse last year in the cool Pacific Northwest, was only able to get one vine though, and ended up with one melon that made it to maturity. The melon was very small, and maybe I picked it too soon, but it wasn't too great. It had a refreshing vanilla-like taste, almost like ice-cream, but it was quite mild too. I don't have room in my greenhouse to try it again this year, but maybe next year. Hopefully I will get better results.
