Kajari Melon

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? Great Color, Smell & Taste

What are the cons? Slow start in high heat

Review:

Typical slow start in high summer heat, grew small in container, but really picked up once drip system was established. Grew a melon every foot and a half, slightly fuzzy and slipped off the vine soon as it started softening and brightened in color. Found it by the smell. Such nectar like sweetness it almost gave me a headache. Beautiful green color inside and tasted as sweet as a home grown honeydew. After Gori melon is done, Kajari melon will get all the melon space for itself. Thank you Botanical Explorer and Baker Creek Family!

What are the pros? Great Germination, Early fruit

What are the cons? None

Review:

This is my first time growing this melon. I am always on the look out for early yielding melons due to the short grow season that we have in NW North Dakota. So far, this melon is fulfilling all of my needs. The germination was great. I started these indoors using a heat mat. The plants flowered quickly and are already setting fruit and it is only the middle of June. I will check back in later in the season to report flavor and yield.

I've had seeds of this for years, having found this gem in an Indian market in Glendale, CA. I wish I had known someone was looking for this . .

What are the pros? Easy to plant, quick grower

What are the cons? powdery mildew

Review:

I was skeptical about how these would be in a northern climate. I planted these a good month and half late, and they finally died due to powdery mildew(very wet summer) but still managed to get a couple melons off. Easy to grow and prolific grower as the vines spread all over the garden. No pest problems. A sweet tasting flesh inside. Got to about the same size as a store bought honeydew. Will grow again next year for sure!

What are the pros? easy to grow & prolific

What are the cons? mildew; bland taste

Review:

i'm a container gardener; perhaps because of this, my harvest failed to be particularly tasty (as opposed to the experience of the first reviewer in MO). still, it was easy to grow this melon and it produced lots of flowers and small fruits. my vine was eventually attacked by mildew and many of the fruits died. the few that was able to harvest only turned orange after harvesting and ripening indoors in a paper bag. for me, they were not particularly sweet.
