The Sakatas Sweet is a beautiful and sweet oriental melon that grows no bigger than a softball! With a harvest weight of 10-12 ounces, the gray-green skin ripens yellow-green with a soft green flesh that is highly aromatic. This melon is fun to grow and does well on a trellis. After harvest, Sakatas Sweet can be stored for a few weeks. This variety has been grown in the East for centuries and is now making an appearance in American markets. You can eat both this tasty melon’s flesh and skin! If the melons are kept out of the sunlight they will stay a stark white!
Seedlings will be 2 inches or taller.
