Watermelon, Yamato Silver

94% of 100

Sugar Sweet & Snow White! Extreme quality texture and flavor have made Silver Yamato an instant favorite in our trials. This snowy, silver-fleshed heirloom hails from Nara Prefecture, Japan. The flavor defies easy description; test tasters have noted a hint of citrus, notes of sweet Asian pear and an overall creamy finish, making a flavor experience that should not be missed! This is an early-maturing melon, great for a range of growing climates. The 6-10 pound fruit is perfect for the home gardener or market gardener. Just remember that this delicate heirloom treasure cracks more easily than shipping types.
