Review:

this is our first year growing this watermelon and I guarantee not my last !! Was afraid the melon would be very weak in flavor since we have had so much rain during it's growing season it seems to make melons not as sweet and lack flavor...well..this is the juiciest and sweetest watermelon I have ever grown. We picked the first one today and it weighed 33 Lbs. !! We have at least a dozen more out in the garden. Was afraid of rotting in the garden since it has rained so much but they have held up very well. I hope they keep on the vine a while because I don't think I can eat this much melon at one time..lol..especially since I am diabetic !! I will tell you that you need a lot of garden space for this melon but well worth it if you love your watermelons!!! Don't think twice about ordering this seed!!!

Review:

This is a wonderful watermelon! Even as we have had to water through this summer's drought, it has done well. We harvested our first fruit yesterday, 67 days after planting the seeds. It was a 17 pound, sweet, and juicy treat. I highly recommend this seed. Now we just need to figure out how to preserve a few as we have 21 currently growing in the garden. :)

Review:

This was the best watermelon of a trial this year. We did Ali Baba, Mississippi Cobb Gem, Katanya, Desert King, and Ice Cream. Ali Baba was hands down the winner. It was the heaviest watermelon from the trial, the best tasting, the best ripening. Mississippi Cobb Gem put out more fruits, but none with the same quality. An interesting note was the fruit shapes can vary significantly. Some were oval, some were very oblong. Incredible melon!

Review:

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.
