One of the best surprises of the evening came from dessert! We enjoyed this juicy, succulent, flavorful melon so much! Seriously, we've never had such a juicy melon. Little did we know that this melon costs ¥24,000 per fruit, so it was a pretty good value meal to get in dessert for each of us. Next time I'm offered Japanese musk mellon for free I'm definitely saying yes!

I heard Japanese musk melons are really juicy, soft yet crunchy and sweet. But even all these are not gd enough to tempt me to have a go at them.
During my April Tokyo trip, I bought a Japanese cantaloupe or muskmelon as a souvenir at Tokyo station for SGD$70. It would cost more than a $100 for a high grade quality, if you buy it in Singapore.
My Mom and Dad, being a Green thumb planted the seeds for fun. And within a few week all the seeds sprouted. Given that we have no knowledge on how to cultivate the plant, to everyone surprised it grew and grew till there were flowers.
Those flowers need to be fertilize to bore fruits, with no knowledge on how to achieve that, we were hesitant to try as the male and female flowers were hard to distinguish. With some sheer luck, a single flower bore fruit and it's still growing big today. My dad told me, the ants might have helped fertilized the flower.
So all of us is looking forward to the day when the fruit is ripe for eating. It's amazing to see a Muskmelon growing in a pot in our tropical temperature!
