The best for sweet flavor and crisp bite
Days to Maturity: 77 to 80
All-America Selections (AAS) Winner 2004
This delightful new Watermelon is so yummy that you may never get to taste it chilled—we’ve been eating it straight from the vine all summer, and once you try that scrumptious crisp sweet red flesh and succulent bite, you may not be able to make it to the fridge, either.
Just 6 to 7 pounds, these merrily striped oblong fruits are the perfect size for the icebox, and make one generous or two average-sized servings. No more sawing away slabs from a 25-pound fruit while the fridge fills up with sticky juice. They mature earlier than many other varieties, and are borne very abundantly on vigorous “semi-upright” (a bit taller than most) vines 3 feet high and up to 9 feet wide. If you love watermelon, Sweet Beauty is the one you want for a summer of great eating.
Winner of an All-America Selections Award, Sweet Beauty was judged superior in flavor and texture, as well as ease of growth and early maturity. This is a super easy-to-grow variety that new gardeners will be successful with and old gardeners will fall upon with joy. The flavor is incomparable—you’ll simply never be able to eat another supermarket watermelon once you taste Sweet Beauty.
Maturing in late summer, Sweet Beauty is a delight in the vegetable garden. Give it room to ramble and set masses of yummy fruit.
