Among the wide variety of varieties, the one that is said to be the “highest grade” is the Earl’s Favorit variety. It seems that the season of Earl’s melon is reached from July to October every year. The beautifully embossed mesh pattern spreads, and when fully ripe, it gives off an elegant fragrance, and its smooth mouthfeel and refreshing sweetness are its major attractions. Known as a synonym for high-class melons, it is also used as a gift.
Hokota’s proud melon is highly evaluated in Japan for both quality and taste. The easy-to-buy price is also attractive, and it is a taste that is loved by local dining tables, and autumn is the season of “Earl melon”. When you think of Hokota melons, you can think of Andean melons and Quincy melons that are shipped from spring to summer, but in autumn, green meat melons are on the market and are popular. Spring melon has a higher sugar content, but it seems that Earl’s melon is characterized by its smooth meat quality, aroma, and elegant sweetness.
Hokota is one of Japan’s leading producers of melons, including blue meat “Otome melon” and “Andes melon”, red meat “Quincy melon” and Ibaraki prefecture’s original blue meat variety “Ibaraki” from April to June. Melons are being shipped to consumers. Also, from summer to autumn, there is a blue meat “Earl Smelon”. Melon is the king of fruits with its sweetness and aroma. It is also used as a gift, so it is very popular with many fans. At the National Melon Summit in Hokota 2016, it seems that the 6th of every month is the anniversary of Melon Day.
