Small watermelons are all the rage
publication date: Jun 1, 2004
You may have heard about mini “personal” watermelons, or seen them in a grocery store. This latest produce craze is a small round watermelon, about the size of a cantaloupe, and weighing 3 to 6 pounds. The mini watermelons have thin rinds and high Brix, meaning they are very sweet.
The most famous of these minis is PureHeart, which Syngenta introduced last year with a major public relations campaign. PureHeart was featured by the Oprah Winfrey Show, Good Morning America, The New York Times, USA Today and Good Housekeeping magazine.
