About Honey Kiss

Honey Kiss Hami Gold is a new exclusive Hami melon variety from Sandstone. The Hami melon originated in the northwest province of Xinxiang in mainland China over 700 years ago and has been popular with the Chinese for centuries. It is said that the Hami melon was not originally produced in the Hami Prefecture but in nearby Shanshan. Because King Hami sent it to the Qing Emperor as a tribute, which praised the fruit greatly for its incomparable honey aroma, the melon was so named "Hami melon." In China the Hami melon is called the “King of Melons” due to its sweet honey aroma, high vitamin content and medicinal value.

Honey Kiss Hami Gold melon has a distinct light crisp texture and is incredibly refreshing and sweet. Honey Kiss melons have a lightly netted distinct yellow skin, light salmon colored meat and are oval in shape. Some melons develop brown spots (sugar spots) due to their high sugar content and are the best tasting melons. Honey Kiss melons have a long shelf life and are extremely refreshing served cut into cubes or melon balls and chilled in the refrigerator.

Sandstone offers the Honey Kiss Hami Gold melons from May through November from Arizona and California. Consumers can find Honey Kiss Melons at finer retail and club stores in the USA and Canada.
