Melon - Sakata's Sweet
This was Sakata's Sweet a couple of weeks ago. They stay small - just larger than a softball.
The one in the photo below is sitting in a regular sized cereal bowl.
Unlike muskmelons, the stem does not detach when ripe - you have to cut it. Three of these spoiled before I figured out that I was waiting too long to pick them.
The inside is green - like a honeydew. The texture of the flesh is rather grainy but it is very sweet.
Delicious, if you like honeydew melons.
