This sweet miniature melon has been grown since Victorian times when fancy ladies carried them in their pockets for their sweet fragrance, though the seeds are quite rare. The tiny fruits have a smooth skin with jagged orange and yellow stripes and mild white flesh. They're no bigger than a billiard ball! Just one ripe fruit, which lasts for about ten days, will perfume a whole room, and the colorful zigzags are quite showy. Plants are compact enough to be grown in containers.
