Kazakh Melon

At last, we once again have a supply of this hard-to-find mini-melon that has a high sugar content and is finely flavored. The one- to two-pound green fruits turn golden when ripe. This variety is early, resistant to drought, and a good climber, making it a great choice for many. An ancient type of melon from central Asia, collected in Kazakhstan, and once offered by by the Gurney Seed Company, of Yankton, South Dakota.

What are the pros? Prolific blooms, many fruits

What are the cons? None

Review:

I planted 3 seeds around the trellis that had previously held cucumbers in early to mid September. It was a trial run with these seeds, and I was a little late to get them into the soil. All 3 seeds germinated and grew beautifully, climbing the trellis, and displayed many blooms that attracted a lot of bees. From the 3 plants, there were a few dozen female blooms so I was getting excited about having all of those developing melons. But then we got a big rain storm which messed up the pollination of many, so I ended up with only a half dozen ripe melons before the freeze. These melons are small, single serving size, but they are delicious !! The flavor is a crisp honeydew flavor. Cut them in half, scoop out the seeds, and eat the melon right from the rind with a spoon. This one is a keeper.

What are the pros? Tasty, Early, Productive

What are the cons? none

Review:

This is one of the ones I found years ago in the Seed Savers Exchange. I may have been the indirect supplier to Baker? I have raised it for 20 years. The son (or nephew) of the original grower from Old Gurney Seeds talked to me about it too, though he did not have a lot more info. I sent him seeds as he lost out, but was glad to get them back. Anyway it's really early, really tasty, and can be hugely productive. This one also stores extremely well - so is sort of a 'Winter Melon" type besides an "Asian" type. I've kept them till after Christmas (served some at dinner), harvested in mid-October. I thought it was a honeydew, but it's not really, just a green-fleshed melon. It doe's not have that musky - muskmelon aroma, so it is a bit more like a honeydew in that respect. The size is perfect for one to three people. I live in a hot day, cold night, short season (sometimes) area, so this is a real winner here. But I think it's of a quality that everyone would find it worthwhile.

What are the pros? Sweet and refreshing

What are the cons? Not much

Review:

I grew the Kazakh in sandy soil that had not been amended for many years. They still taste wonderful. Much like sugar cane. Highly recommended. I hope Baker Creek continues to stock this seed! Next year should be even better after I deal with soil issues.

Review:

This melon has a humble vine with smallish leaves, but the melons are amazing- a crisp green flesh which is sweeter than most melons. Very much a delicacy- this is the type of fruit that serves as a treat for special guests or as a wonderful gift. Keep all of your seeds as you will surely be asked to share!

Review:

Excellent germination rate, and germinated quick! It seems to like sandy soil better, the ones in the okra bed are doing fine. Can't wait until this one produces!
