Lilliput is a unique personal-sized, miniature Eastern melon with very high sugars and fragrance that combine for a wonderful flavor. The exterior begins light green then turns to a yellow-tan color as it ripens. The stem slips when fully mature. Try halving the melons to use as edible bowls for fruit or ice cream! Sow seed when soil is warm. Plants require full sun and even moisture. Sow seed directly into well worked soil and cover lightly. Water directly after planting to promote germination.
