Named for its exceptional sweetness, the sugar baby is a small, round watermelon. Just as juicy and sweet, but fits in the refrigerator, which is why it is also known as the icebox melon. Serve it in wedges to showcase the jade-green rind against the bright crimson flesh. The nickname "baby" is a relative term — though sugar baby watermelons weigh in the seven-to-nine-pound range, wild watermelons can be as small as a peach.
