Cut in half lengthwise, they make a beautiful bowl for fruit salad or even a chilled soup in the summer.

It’s easy to see how this delightfully sweet, crisp and diminutive melon gets its name: Asaki, which means cute and crunchy in Korean. Asaki Melons are just the right size to share between two people. Cut in half lengthwise, they make a beautiful bowl for fruit salad or even a chilled soup in the summer. You will love this melon! 

Look for bright yellow fruit with ridges running through it. The flesh inside is a pretty light orange color with a medium-sized seed cavity. Fruit will arrive ripe and ready to enjoy. Store in the crisper drawer in your refrigerator until ready to use.
