Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 3.0

What are the pros? Large, Productive, sweet

What are the cons? what is not to like


we have grown this melon for a few years now. when we have a good melon year these really produce. we get nothing less than 20 pounds and most melons are over 40 pounds. our heaviest this year was 47.8 pounds. took me 2 days to eat that sucker. i did eat a 42 pound watermelon in one day though. love the clean energy. the melons do well for us. they have larger seeds. i just chew up the seeds when eating the melon. love the color of the outside of the melon. the flavor is good and simple. we have other watermelons with more intricate flavor but these are good. we will keep planting them. note, we grow in thick leaf mulch and wood chip mix. gives more flavor and size. we only watered by sprinkler this year. stopped watering late fall. it is october 24 2017 and just picked our last Ali Baba watermelon. it weighed 42 pounds. touch over ripe but still good watery sweet texture. the middle seems to get mealy when over ripe but still quite edible.
