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:

I'm growing five types from Baker Creek, two vines each of Blacktail Mountain, Orangeglo, Sugar Baby, Takii Gem and White Sugar Lump. I cut a Blacktail early under pressure from my mother (argh!) and should have known better because the spot was not yellow or even white, though the tendril and spoon were both dried and brown, and it sounded hollow. This White Sugar Lump had a yellow spot, brown dry tendril and spoon, and sounded plenty hollow, but it still wasn't quite there. It tastes mild and sweet; both my husband and I like it a lot. But the seeds aren't dark, so it was early. Now I know! Regardless, each vine is growing in a 2x2 raised bed with about 18" between each bed. Soil is a raised bed/compost mixture and they're watered every day. Straw covering the ground between the boxes and under the vines/fruit. Hot, dry summers in the Pacific Northwest are making it possible!

Review:

This is my first time growing this melon. I planted 18 seeds and had all of them sprout. The majority of them sprouted in just three days. I started them on a heat mat. I am looking forward to tasting this one. I will write an update at the end of the season.

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.
