A type called a three-quarter type, which is used for greenhouse melon cultivation, is generally wrapped in glass or plastic film that keeps the internal temperature constant. It seems that the feature is that the area of the roof on the south side is large. In the room, melon seedlings are installed in a staircase pattern, and they are carefully exposed to the sun. It seems that temperature control is adjusted by opening and closing windows and heating hot water pipes laid on the ground.
In the jurisdiction, Echigo romantic melons, which are shipped in addition to the Soleil melons introduced this time, are based on “sugar content of 14 degrees or more” and seem to be measured at the time of shipment. For this reason, the producer seems to check the measurement condition by himself at the time of harvesting. Unlike watermelon, melons ripen even after harvesting, so it is a little earlier than when they are ready to eat, but it seems that they must be picked when the standard sugar content is 14 degrees or higher. This excellent agricultural product is a net-based, sweet green melon, which has been produced as a fruit that is deeply trusted by consumers.
I heard that melon cultivation began in 1910 with melon cultivation. Niigata melons can be enjoyed from early summer to late autumn, so there are many fans all over the country. In particular, the variety “Akimidori Melon” cultivated in the prefecture (Niigata Prefectural Agricultural Research Institute Horticultural Research Center (Mano, Seiro Town, Kitakanbara District): A melon for controlled cultivation, with a slightly dark green skin, a fine net, and a swelling. Slightly low, but strong yellow green meat with high sugar content and excellent taste. Shipped mainly from mid-October to early November) , “Sunny Sweet Melon” is yellow-green fruit with high sugar content and taste. Seems to be outstanding. Open-air melons are shipped mainly from Niigata City and Ojiya City from around July, followed by greenhouse melons mainly from Niigata City from September to October. In Niigata Prefecture, the cultivation of Prince Melon (a non-net type produced by the crossing of the oriental melon “New Melon” and the red meat melon “Sharante Melon” by Sakata Seed Corporation in 1961) began around 1963. Nowadays, it seems that various varieties are cultivated.
