India is much smaller than the U.S., however it has three times the population and a history that goes back at least 5000 years. There are hundreds and hundreds of ethnic groups in India. All of this human diversity has also resulted in an immense diversity of crops. Melons are loved everywhere in India, they are eaten not only as sweet fruits but also are selected and used for salad use ( like semi-sweet cucumbers) or even as staples ( some can be cooked in stews and goulashes--check out the Malabar Vellary type offered by Joe in the Oman section). This gorgeous melon is one of the salad types, a Sikh Melon guy in Delhi, India told Joe that this was a popular variety for fresh eating, he said that the fruit was slightly sweet and slightly acidic, making it great for use in green salads and/or fruit salad mixes. We are sure that this melon will rival the likes of the Tigger melon in beauty... and probably in popularity. The painting for this melon was done by our friend Amy Glasser who is a young artist with a real talent for Botanicals. Thanks Amy!

What are the pros? Easy to grow, very pretty

What are the cons? Weirdest tasting fruit

Review:

I recommend these absolutely. Would I grow them again? No. This melon is the kind of thing you grow for the "here, man, taste this!" category. Ripe, the Keli Kheli melon has an aroma that touches overripe cantaloupe with a tinge of anaerobic compost pile and the flesh is strangely oily and astringent. One cool feature is the almost perfect symmetrical ring of holes exuding melon juice. I wanted to like them so bad. They were insanely productive in a close-spaced raised bed. When I pulled the plant there were a dozen underripe guys hanging out. After four I just couldn't eat them at all. I still recommend you grow Keli Kheli melons. Maybe you'll find a cool way to use them that inspires us all!
