SUGAR BELLE

« Back

A hybrid Sugar Baby type, SUGAR BELLE has superior fruit set and produces highly uniform melons with excellent internal flesh colour and high sugars. SUGAR BELLE has been a long time standard for many watermelon growers throughout New Zealand. SUGAR BELLE has proven to be a consistent performer throughout the season, although ideally suited for early season production, typically maturing in 11-12 weeks from transplanting.
