Crystine’s favorite little melon, we have been growing this one for almost 15 years now. Sakata’s are about the size of a large grapefruit, with delicious almost honeydew-esque light green flesh and a very thin pale rind. Like many Asian melons they are often picked while there is still a light crispness to the flesh and the skin has just begun to turn a light yellowish green. Vines are compact to medium spreading, productive and very well suited to cooler northern growing. They store well in the fridge and are a rare sweet treat from our northern gardens. Prepare yourself for their fresh sweetness! Sakata is the perfect size for one wonderful and juicy treat!
