85 days. A favorite Asian variety of Dr. Amy Goldman, author of Melons for the Passionate Grower. These small 3-4-inch round melons are very sweet with a high sugar content. Oriental varieties open a whole new dimension to melons as they are amazingly different. Crisp and crunchy--they have edible skins. Their small size and brilliant golden rind make them very attractive. This fine Japanese variety was developed by Sakata's Seed Co. of Yokohama. Very Rare.

What are the pros? Easy, sweet, fragrant

What are the cons? Critters love them too.

Review:

I planted six different melons this year, but with the drought and my neglect, most didn't do well. This was an extreme exception. It started early and kept producing absolutely delicious little melons, very sugary, with a strong flavor and fragrance like a honeydew. The skin is as tender and edible as apple skin. I wound up building little brick shelters around each fruit to stop critters from stealing them, since they enjoy them too.

What are the pros? everything

What are the cons? slightly gritty feel

Review:

This is my favorite melon because it is prolific, sweet and you eat it like an apple- rind and all!! It must be easy to grow since it is the only melon I've had such luck with! I'm planting this one every year from now on.

Awesome Little Melon

What are the pros? Tons of fruit per vine

What are the cons? none

Review:

These little melons are incredible. Smell just like Juicy Fruit. Aroma & sugar content make for a super treat. Very important for any cantaloupe or muskmelon: Cultivate deep (2' minimum, 3'-4' better) and wide (at least 8').
