An interesting nugget about a Sugar Baby watermelon is its very high “brix” measurement. What does “brix” measurement mean? Commercial watermelon growers value melons high in sugar and the name for this sweetness is called “brix” and can be scientifically measured. As its name implies, Sugar Baby watermelons have a brix measurement of 10.2 and rank as one of the sweetest watermelon cultivars. Citrullus lanatus, or Sugar Baby watermelon, is an incredibly productive grower as well. Sugar Baby melons are round “picnic” or “icebox” watermelons perfect for small families and as the name suggests, small enough to fit into the icebox. They weigh in at between 8 to 10 pounds (4-5 kg.) and are 7 to 8 inches (18-20 cm.) across. They have either a dark green with slight dark veins or medium green with dark veined rind. The flesh is as mentioned; sweet, red, firm, and crisp mottled with very few small, tan-black seeds.
