Sugar Baby is used as a pollinator for many seedless watermelons, although it is not a "universal donor". Many seed sellers include a suitable pollinator, sometimes in a separate little package inside the seedless watermelon seed packet. The pollinator needs to provide pollen at the appropriate time, so it should be the same "degree of earliness" as the triploid.

Would sugar baby bush(only 3-3.5 ft) variety pollinate the seedless variety, cause I'm trying to save space?
