At Atsumi Peninsula, growers take full advantage of the mild climate by cultivating melons in glass greenhouses, with complete control over temperature, humidity, and watering. They are grown with care, with only one fruit grown per plant. Ranked at the top of the fruit hierarchy, the highly popular melon is called the king of fruits.

Message from a grower

Earl’s Melon Grower / Tahara City / Mr. Yoshio Nishikawa


Melons are grown in greenhouses with complete control over water, temperature and soil, and only one fruit is grown on each plant. Enjoy the heavenly taste of this fruit with its concentrated sweetness.

In the greenhouse, each fruit is hung on a string and covered with newspaper to prevent suntans (irregular discoloration).”
