The Pepino melon farm owned by Nguyen Dinh in Da lat has brought huge benefits to its owner while itself becoming a tourist attraction.
The farm is next to Chien Thang Lake in ward 8, Central Highlands’ Da Lat City.
Mr Dinh says he planted Pepino melon on an area of 200sq.m in 2005. In the initial period, its output was too low and melon was not as sweet as expected.
After changing farming methods, his farm now has stable productivity and the melon is sweeter.
The farm now covers nearly 1,000sq.m with an output of around 130kg of Pepino melon per day and nearly 4 tons per month.
Pepino melon has 10 different flavours.
Visitors come to Dinh’s farm to take photos and buy melon.
The farm also plants chili, cucumber and tomato.
