Kiku Chrysanthemum Melon

92% of 100

Rare Marvel from Japan! This historic melon is named for the Japanese Chrysanthemum flower, which it is said to resemble. One of the best melons we found in Japan, with an incredibly unique flavor. A very rare, early and beautifully productive, small, white, creamy melon that has mellow flesh. It tastes like Greek yogurt with a hint of lychee; the flavor has also been compared to pear. The origin of Kiku melon is the Makuwa Uri melon which came from China to Japan sometime in antiquity.
