Re: How to Grow Watermelons

Hi, last summer I grew two types of watermelon. One a Watson, the other Sugar Baby. Both grew OK and produced about five melons each. The Watson made a typical good ripe melon. The Sugar Baby produced melons from about 8" to 11" in diameter. I waited until late fall, until the plants dried up, to pick them. However, each melon when I cut into them was white inside, not sweet, and obviously not ripe. It is now February and I still have one Sugar Baby left, stored in the house and hoping that this last one might now be ripe, what happened?
