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!

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.

Review:

Pulled a Kajari melon, this morning. well, technically, didn't pull it, it had dropped. in recent increases in rain, it had put on more weight and begun to split. this morning the color was even and it had fallen off the vine. I took that as a hint. It smelled DIVINE! the fragrance is kind of a blend of honeydew with some citrus notes, as was the flavor. oh, the taste! Sweet, intense, honeydew, citrus but not as cloyingly sweet as a honeydew. it was marvelous. the flesh was firmer than you see in ripe honeydew. you know how a good honeydew has flesh that is either crisp or gelatinous but nothing in between, this was soft, creamy and smooth but not he least gelatinous. it melted in my mouth and i can still taste it as well as smell it. it is a small melon, again, a single serving, but that was part of my criteria, this year, I wanted small fruits. this one was slightly larger than a baseball with a seed cavity the size of a golfball. so, the flesh was a good 1/2" - 3/4" layer all the w

What are the pros? tastes like candy

Review:

This is simply the best tasting melon I have ever tried, it's like candy. And its beautiful, like a water color painting. Every customer we had that tried this melon couldn't get enough. Easy to tell when they are ripe. We live in Southern Canada, had no problem growing it here.

Review:

This was my first year to grow these melons but they were very easy to grow. I planted early enough to get a second crop from the same vines. I didn't have any trouble with pests (other than a hungry possum). They have a very strong, unique fragrance when they start to ripen. It's very easy to tell when they're ready by the smell, gorgeous color, and the stem that starts to pull away from the melon. I picked mine the day after they started changing colors. When I waited any later, they fell off the vine. They have a very mild flavor and a refreshing after taste that reminds me of cucumbers. Kajari melons will be growing in my garden every year from now on. :-)
