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? Good in drought and heat

What are the cons? quite small

Review:

I read the previous reviews and my experience was quite similar. The melons were heat and drought tolerant, no powdery mildew, and liked by small worms. Perhaps due to the environmental conditions, my melons were quite small, not quite enough for one serving if it being consumed as a meal but delightful as a side dish.

What are the pros? Grows quickly

What are the cons? None so far

Review:

This is my first year and started a few in small pots and transplanted half into large 10 gal. pot and half into hill. Planted in straight compost. Use fish fertilizer once a week. Planted end of march by seed and now have melons golf ball sized. No mildew problems, although did notice that of all my melons these plants were favorites from pickle worm during most of April. Used neem oil spray and bacillus thuriengensis and now problem has stopped. They seem to run quite a bit, but I won't probably know flavor for another month and will repost then. Otherwise, no powdery mildew problem or problems with other insects. Plants flower heavily here, so fruit set isn't a problem. We will see if they split, as we get plenty rain here on Hilo side of big island. So far....so good.

What are the pros? easy to grow, great taste

Review:

These melons were very easy to grow and produced beautiful great tasting melons. My only problem is the raccoons like them as much as I so. I'm going to grow them on a trellis this year to see if I can get more this year.

What are the pros? easy to grow

Review:

Great tasting melon they held their own in the intense Australian summer with temperatures of multiple 45 degree days (110 Fahrenheit) where just about everything else in my garden was fried. I had cucumbers growing next to them that quickly died from powdery mildew but the kajari melon did not seem to be affected by it. Over all great melon to grow!! I have been enjoying mine with ice cream, YUM!

What are the pros? unique flavor, appearance

What are the cons? tendency to split

Review:

This was our first season growing this variety. They were fast growing and early maturing. They also seem to be fairly resistant to powdery mildew. All of our other varieties were hit hard, but there was very little evidence of powdering mildew on the kajari even though it was in direct contact with the infected varieties. The flavor is quite unique and hard to describe. It is very sweet and rich with almost a buttery aftertaste. The color of the melons changes from black to rust to bright orange as it matures with a bright green flesh. This was very popular with our customers. Our only issue was that they had a tendency to split.
