Full Description

‘Meet ‘Mama’s Girl’, the sweet big sister to our best-selling mini melon ‘Little Darling’. Sized just right for the family, tiger-striped ‘Mama’s Girl’ is 25% heavier than her compact little sister, with dense, extra-moist flesh, dialed-up sweetness, and thin rind. Great for instant snacks and picnic desserts. The fruit takes up little space in the fridge, and vigorous 4-5' vines are a great choice for smaller gardens. Fruit weight: 6-7 lbs.

Watermelon, Mama's Girl Hybrid is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious & Productive I had great luck with this watermelon. I live in western Nebraska and watermelon are typically to long season for us. Mine produced about 7 watermelons which had fantastic flavor! The only problem I had was that I didn't realize when they were ripe. I was used to other melons detaching from the stem when they were ripe, but these didn't. I definitely want to try them again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor results I had problems getting this to germinate, and then when it did, it took a long time for any flowers. Towards the end of the season, in August I started to get 3 small melons. They got to be a little bigger than a golf ball, then rotted.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing Despite closely following the planting instructions I was not successful in getting any of these to come up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not do well in zone 3. No watermelon were produced over the entire growing season. Typically I hand pollinate, but no female and male flowers were ever present at the same time. I have never had luck with watermelon in my growing zone 3, so this was no exception. May do better in a longer grow season.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Netral on this title This was my challenge. It was hard to germinate and took a long time. If I were to do it again I would do it in a hot house. Yield for me was poor.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not For Short Growing Seasons I had high hopes for this little watermelon when I received a packet of seeds as part of the 2016 Burpee Trial Gardener program, but unfortunately, it was not able to bear in our short growing season. (We only have an average of 90 days between frosts.)
