What are the pros? Excellent flavor, crisp
What are the cons? Root-knot nematode likes it
I've never met a watermelon that could compare to Ali-Baba for me. The sweet flavor and crisp texture just can't be beat! Where some melons become soggy around the seeds, Ali-Baba does not. They grow really well in my sandy soil and I've grown them for 5 consecutive years now. I have to plant soon after last frost because when it gets really warm in the summer, root-knot nematodes will kill the vines on these so I plant early to try to harvest as many as I can! These vines go everywhere, but even if I was limited on my space, I would still grow this variety. Taste just can't be beat.
