Hanging Melons

Hanging Melons in GreenhouseThe yellow skin watermelons in the greenhouse of the bonsai workshop are growing fast and nicely.  These watermelons start out green and change to their golden color as they ripen.

On the left are cantaloupes, and on the right are yellow watermelons.  On the ground are chayote, maybe??

This is a watermelon that has been pollinated for around 7-10 days.

We can tell that these flowers have been pollinated by the big bellies they have.

Teacher Wong told me that there are 梨瓜 (lee gwar) growing on the ground.  I don’t know how a 梨瓜 looks like, and I don’t know what it is called in English. But  I am guessing that they may be chayote… Well, let’s see.  We will find out as the fruits grow 😉

  • I’d be interest to know how the lee gwar look like when ripe and how is the taste. Those cantaloupes in the picture look heavy. I’m wondering how they can hold the weight hanging up there.

    Autumn Belle – those hanging melons in the photo are yellow-skinned watermelon 🙂 And yes! I will definitely take a few photos of the lee gwar when they ripe!
