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? Tons of fruit per vine
What are the cons? none
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').

I grew this melon on a trellis this year. It produced softball-sized melons well in my Zone 5 garden. The first melon I tried was good but not spectacular. After reading a tip online I tried leaving the melons in the fridge for a day or two after harvesting. I don't know what it does but after trying it I can say this is one of the sweetest melons I have eaten. And it remains crisp (almost like a cucumber) so is a delightful change from the normal melon texture. My husband hates all melon and asked for seconds. I will grow this annually.

Grew these along with Tiger Melons last year. Didn't produce as much as the Tiger, and fruits tended to go bad quickly. OK tasting, but interesting to grow.
