This fruit is celebrated for its extraordinary candy sweetness, featuring a mild and refreshing taste that superbly blends the flavors of cantaloupe and honeydew melon with the crispy crunch of cucumber.

Hami’s firm texture makes it perfect for almost every culinary application. Unlike softer melon varieties, Hami can be skewered and even grilled without falling apart. The texture delights your senses with a combination of crunchiness and juicy sweetness. Serve chilled for a supremely refreshing treat.

Store melons at room temperature. When ripe, the melon will emit a musky, floral fragrance and the skin near the stem end will be slightly soft to the touch. To prepare the melon, rinse the skin, slice in half and scoop the seeds from the center cavity. From there, slice into wedges with the skin on, or shave off the skin and cut into chunks. Store sliced melon in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
