An open pollinated round melon that is a Japanese specialty. Developed in the 1950s for its fragrance and sweet tasting fruit, it has smooth green skin and white to pale yellow flesh. Each plant produces roughly 4-8 melons.
Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in late spring/early summer after last frost in a warm, sunny location. Soil temperatures below 50°F can slow growth. Consider using black plastic and fabric row cover to speed soil warming. Sandy or light-textured soils that warm quickly in spring are best. Sow 3 seeds per hill and space hills 3' apart. Harvest when the fruit is about 3/4 lb or cut to taste sample melon for maturity.
Please note: Maturity, adaptability and disease tolerance may differ under your specific climate and/or growing conditions.
