Gingkaku Melons

I am thrilled to share with you my Gingkaku melon plants that just started bearing fruit! I normally like to focus on flowers in my yard but the flowering of this melon is extremely exciting since the last few months it looked like it was never going to grow. Maybe the 100 degrees heat helped these plants thrive. They are the cutest!

Gingkaku melons are Korean melons that you may find at some Asian stores. All the ones I have tasted were sweet and juicy so when I saw that had seeds for sale I nabbed it. I started growing the seeds in March and all these months it was growing very slowly. I didn’t have hope that it was going to survive. These here are beautiful plants! I hope it continues to thrive and not be diseased in the next few months. I may do a follow up post.

There are two plants growing in this patch.
