Update on mystery watermelon on the cover of Grace from the Garden

  • Subject: [cg] Update on mystery watermelon on the cover of Grace from the Garden

Heard back from Deb Engle today, and she says the watermelon on the cover is
called 'Garden Baby.'

Here is some info on it from places that have the seeds:
http://www.superseeds.com/VegT-W.htm  info near bottom of page; and they
also have one called pony yellow that looks like it might be similar in size

In searching for this I found some that are smaller and the honey cream at
least seems to be earlier:

"Honey Cream watermelon" is another fast-growing watermelon (65 days from
transplanting) that has a yellow-orange flesh. The melons weigh 3-4 pounds
and each plant can bear up to 10 melons each.

http://oregonstate.edu/dept/hort/233/watermelon.htm (they list Honey Cream
as being the same size as Garden Baby in the 7-14 pound range)
Midget (3-6 pounds)
