Dosakai Melon

1 Review | Write a Review

(Cucumis melo) Although much of the information about Dosakai calls them cucumbers they are NOT cucumbers! They are actually a part of the so called “Conomon” group of Melons. Traditionally the Conomon melons have been used in the far east for pickling. The Dosakai Melons are used in India for pickling, (in the Indian Style) and for using as an ingredient in Sambar a type of lentil/vegetable stew prevalent in South India. They are as easy to grow as any other melons and are very productive. There are many recipes for making “Sambar” with Dosakai that are available on Indian cooking websites. Bring some authentic Southern Indian produce into your life with these!

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? None


This is the only melon I grew this year that the raccoons did not "pick" just as they were ripening! The plants are pretty and not too enormous. I plan on cooking them in the Indian style soon.
