One of my favorite sweet and fragrant melons!  Delicious!  This annual sweet melon  is handful size with pale green thin peel, the look is like a petit honeydew melon!   This heirloom melon is very easy to grow.   Best growing in full sun location in rich soil.   Open pollinate.  Small yellow flowers in summer.  It can be grown as a trailing vine or climbing vine.  Fast mature, about 50+ days.

我很喜愛的瓜類之一,它的瓜肉很是香甜好吃!  它是一年生的甜瓜,熟果通常是可以單手抓住不會掉的大小,瓜皮薄呈淺綠色,有點像是很小號的蜜世界(白蘭瓜),不過比較香!  這瓜很容易栽種,也很容易結果.  最好栽種在全日照處的肥沃土壤.  花朵容易經昆蟲幫忙授粉而結果. 夏開黃色小花.  由於它喜熱,通常夏天長速很快.  它能在地上爬或架高攀爬.   由種子到瓜熟生長快速.約50天左右.
