Smaller melons are growing in popularity as consumers seek to maximise convenience and minimise waste
What is Sandissima®?
Households find it difficult to consume a traditional watermelon of 5kg, and often purchase a melon portion rather than a whole melon. Sandissima® watermelon varieties from Rijk Zwaan deliver a good eating experience in a small package.
No yield penalty
The high number of fruit produced by Sandissima varieties means that there is no yield penalty for growing a smaller, more convenient melon. The internal quality of these smaller fruit is uniformly good, with crisp flesh, deep colour, excellent flavour, and very small edible seeds.
