Sugar Cube Melon Seeds

Sugar Cube Melon Seeds

Sweet Mini Melons

The Sugar Cube Melon, originating from Japan, is celebrated for its compact size and sweet, delectable taste. This cultivar belongs to the Cucumis melo species and doesn't have distinct subspecies but stands out for its exceptional qualities.

The plant presents an appealing aesthetic with compact vines that produce petite, round melons resembling large sugar cubes. Its compact growth habit makes it suitable for small gardens or containers, offering both ornamental beauty and a bountiful harvest.

Taste-wise, the Sugar Cube Melon lives up to its name, delivering a remarkably sweet and juicy flavor with a refreshing taste reminiscent of honeydew and cantaloupe. These small-sized melons offer a delightful eating experience, perfect for snacking or adding to fruit salads.

When planting Sugar Cube Melon from seed, it thrives in well-drained, nutrient-rich soil with full sun exposure. Sow the seeds directly into the ground or containers after the last frost date, ensuring a soil temperature around 70-90°F (21-32°C) for successful germination.

Regular watering and providing proper spacing, approximately 2-3 feet apart, supports healthy growth and fruit development. Additionally, mulching around the plants helps retain moisture and suppress weeds. Sugar Cube Melon adapts well to various climates but flourishes best in warm, sunny conditions, yielding an abundance of sweet, bite-sized fruits that delight the palate.

    Planting & Care

    Soil & Water: Melons like moderately rich, well-drained soils with plenty of phosphorous and potassium and a pH of 6.0-6.8. For flavorful fruits, melons need moderate water as seedlings, low water before transplanting, moderate water during growth, and low, even water during fruit development.

    Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 2-3 weeks before the last frost or seed directly after the last frost. Melons need plentiful heat to develop; use plastic mulch and row covers in cooler climates.

    Harvesting & Storage: Melons are ripe when the rind changes color to yellow and gentle pressure separates the stem from the vine. Melons can store in the refrigerator for about a week, if you can keep from eating them that long!
