Shizuoka Crown melon is the world's highest grade melon cultivated in a greenhouse in Shizuoka prefecture, and it can be said that it has a history of 70 years of melon cultivation in Japan. The temperature and moisture are thoroughly controlled in a fully glassed greenhouse, and the seeds to be planted are selected from several types depending on the season, making it an uncompromising cultivation method. Furthermore, the sugar content, meat quality, flavour, and maturity of the finished melon are strictly checked before shipping, and only those that meet all the standards are shipped as crown melons.
The reason, why Crown Melon is said to be the highest peak in the world, is its supreme taste. The fine flesh and exceptional sweetness, as well as the aroma of musk, which is the origin of the name of melon, are all of the highest quality. The special feeling has been proven in "dominant melon"! When market participants and speciality store owners gathered to eat and compare melons from various production areas nationwide and performed "tasting melons" that were not sake, we were able to win only the crown melons produced in Shizuoka prefecture.
It takes about 100 days from sowing to harvesting melons, but during that time, producers, a group of professional craftsmen, take care of them every day, and it is essential to control water and temperature and humidity. In addition to advanced cultivation technology, the highest quality melons are produced because they are cultivated by producers who are proud to be the producers of the top melon brand "Crown Melon".
