This is one of the melons that just about drove Joe crazy trying to secure. For more than 8 years he tried to get seeds of this extremely interesting variety. The red/copper stripes interspersed with light green and then a dark green rib make this an extremely unusual beautiful melon. We are told that it is extra-early, bearing in as little as 70 days. We have been told that the flesh is pale green/peach color and very sweet. Joe believes that this melon originated in the Punjab. The paintings for this melon were done by Amy Glasser a young Botanical Artist who has a great eye for detail. Thanks Amy!

What are the pros? pretty, nice flavor

What are the cons? powdery mildew, low yields

Review:

Not sure if it is our climate here in PA, but these didn't do much for us. We planted the first crop in May, and the plants came up, but were never very healthy. They produced one melon and then died. Thinking maybe we had planted too early, we started another set (in a different location) in July, plants came up spread out a few feet then withered and died. It also seems like this variety is very susceptible to powdery mildew.

What are the pros? Very pretty

What are the cons? Unimpressive flavor

Review:

We started these seeds indoors and transplanted out in early June. More than half were dead within the first two weeks, although nothing else seemed to be struggling. The few that survived grew well, and produced 2-3 melons each, but we were not impressed with the flavor. They are quite pretty when they ripen, but we won't grow them again. We strongly prefer the Ha'ogen melon's flavor, and they grew like crazy right next to where the Kujari had been withering and dying.

Review:

So taste is unique , very sweet with a strong melon taste. Amazing smell.Very enjoyable, first melon I picked had a bit of after taste I thought but wasn't an unpleasant taste. It's unique don't plant expecting an exact cantaloupe or exact honeydew type.im impressed that it is early August over 100 degrees for the eighth day straight and this vine is still thriving . I'm just now getting first few melons actually, I recommend covering the melons with just a white towell or rag, I had 2 bust open in direct sun. I'm not sure exact planting time but these didn't feel any faster or slower than average melons around here. I will grow these again and absolutely recommend,don't let the exotic look scare you off grow like a normal melon with lots of water and soon you'll have cool orange melons.5 stars

Review:

There's so much to love about this melon! Easy to grow, no disease problems, prolific (for a muskmelon) and absolutely the cutest, most beautiful muskmelon I have ever grown. The immature fruits turn bright orange w/green and white stripes when ripe and are very fragrant. The flesh is green with hues of the palest green toward the center graduating to deep green at the rind. The fruits are very juicy with soft (but not mushy) flesh. Melts in your mouth! I had only one problem with this melon. Raccoons. The coons ate nearly half of the melons produced. So, I had to start picking them a day early, just after turning orange, or the coons would eat them at night. But the two melons we got that were dead ripe on the vine were indescribably delicious. I am currently researching ways to coon-proof my garden that is not cost-prohibitive. I highly recommend Kajari melon.
