(Cucumis melo)

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.

Lovely red-brown melons with gold stripes and rich white flesh. Weight about 1/4 pound, a nice individual portion to pack with a sack lunch.

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.

    Hardy and prolific, I think this little melon is most like a small version of a honeydew melon – it is very similar in taste and like a honeydew it is sweetest while it still a bit green, before it has the yellow and brown coloring featured in the images used in advertising. It puts out long vines that do well on trellises, allowing for very high yields per square foot.

      It’s a great little melon to pack with lunch, it’s tough, smells great, and if you ease off the water the last week before harvest, the melons are very sweet.

      RS-132 melons are in production now, finishing inside Greenhouse One. After processing and curing, we’ll have seeds before spring.
