According to Baker Creek Seeds, these little pocket melons come from somewhere in Russia. They’re only about 3 or 4 inches across, but still pack quite a punch, both in taste and in visuals.
We grew these with ease through several Phoenix, Arizona summers reaching over 120 degrees.
We are currently adapting them to our Northeastern Arizona location, on top of a mesa in the Painted Desert at 6700 feet elevation. There is no purer sunshine or air quality available. Watered from a native sandstone aquifer.
These highly aromatic little fruit have a mild tropical flavor, mildly sweet. There’s also just a hint of coconut aroma to give a pina colada impression.
Great for school and work lunches, picnics, backpacking and sports practice.
Vigorous vines are highly productive from late spring until frost.
