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. Fruits weigh around 5-10 lbs each and ripen early. It was carried by the Henry Field’s Seed Company in the 1950s and 1960s, 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:

First off, I'm a beginner. I started these inside under a grow light. I'm growing 1 white sugar lump, 1 clay county yellow meat, 1 ali baba, and 1 orange glo. I started them in early March and put them out the last weekend in April. They have gotten no special treatment. Just regular watering. I dug holes in my back yard (straight up CLAY) and dumped in a bag of worm casting per hole. I also added bone meal and blood meal. No signs of transplant shock or anything and they were pretty big transplants. Its early June and I have 1 nice clementine-sized melon on the white sugar lump and 3 marble sized melons on it as well. I come out every morning and check to see if I need to hand-pollinate anything. I don't leave it up to the bees. White sugar lump has more going on right now than all the others. Ali baba has 1 pickle-sized melon and I just hand pollineated 1 on the clay county yellow as well. I'd grow them all again even though orange glo is kind of letting me down right now.

What are the pros? Easy and fast growth, flavor

What are the cons? Size

Review:

These grew surprisingly well here in the desert southwest of El Paso, TX. I enjoyed the sweet flavor combined with the unique white flesh of this little melon. I just wish they were a little bigger in size. Very thin rind, so be careful when handling these, as they will crack very easily.

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.
