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? 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. :-)

What are the pros? Best taste ever

What are the cons? Zone 8a is the coldness limit

Review:

I grew in this year 7 variety of melons / 5 water melon. And as surprise the Kajari was clear winner when it is about taste. Very sweet and juice that water is dropping by cutting. Most importantly, this has wonderful aftertaste which reminds me butter cream and slightly salty (like Noir de Carmes). Plus, intensiv fragrance is like no other melons. I was very surprised. Certainly this is quite special melon. Thus I say thanks for the offering seeds.I will buy this seed next year. Con: my area is 8a-7b. Young plants had difficulty to come trough. Therefore I didn't expect that it grows late well (when summer arrived) and brought healty fruits. It did. I think, below 8a is not going.

What are the pros? Gorgeous melon

Review:

Kajari was one of four melons that I tested here in my northern garden. I live in Zone 3. So, early maturity is a must. I brought these in with room to spare. I reviewed this melon earlier but had not had a chance to taste it at the time of the review. It has a very distinct flavor. If you let the melon slip from the vine, store it for another week in the refrigerator or a cool spot. This will improve the flavor and sweetness of the melon. If you are a northern gardener and have difficulty growing melons, this is one that I would recommend.

Review:

Not my favorite melon. Beautiful, thin rind, early, quite productive. Did not like the taste, not so sweet like other varieties. Most of plants died. Zone 6, 2 months cold, one month hot and dry summer.
