75 days. This is one of the best finds from our trip to Japan. The Kaho watermelon has gorgeous salmon-orange flesh that is delicious right up to the super thin rind, making this one of the most unique watermelons we trialed this year. It was also one of the best we’ve tasted. Elongated fruits weight about 2-4 pounds and are perfect for 2 servings. This rare heirloom was originally brought to Japan from China around the year 1912.

Review:

Here in the Colorado Front Range at the border of 5b/6a, growing watermelon is tough. These produced in our relatively short season. Not quite as early as my Blacktail Mountain watermelons, but early enough. Unique light green exterior and salmon-colored flesh. Very creamy and sweet. Lots of seeds. Will definitely grow again.

Review:

Grew this watermelon for the first time this year and it performed great! First watermelon to mature, direct seeded in May, had my first melon at the end of July. Up to 7 watermelons produced per 1 plant! Just the right size to serve a large family in a single serving, or a small family in 2 servings. Mine were between 2.5 - 4.5 lbs each. The light color of the rind prevents sunburn and the thin skin helps to tell when it is ripe as the yellow of the flesh starts to show through the skin on the bottom of the melon and the whole skin lightens in color. The taste is great, the best yellow watermelon I have tasted. Super juicy and the rind is so thin and sweet you can eat right up to the edge, or even crunch the whole rind if you want to. The only down side is there are quite a few seeds, however, this doesn't bother me as I enjoy seed-spitting as part of a good watermelon experience. Plus, many seeds means many volunteer melons in my cold compost pile next spring! ;) Will grow it again!

What are the pros? Matured early

What are the cons? Very small

Review:

I was originally excited to grow these but I was quite disappointed with the final results. The size of the melon is very small. I had several of them split open on the ground. It is extremely seedy and very average for flavor. I will not bother growing these again.

Review:

I haven't had a chance to grow these yet, but I received a ripe melon as a gift. Well, it was actually a little under-ripe, but that's what prompted me to write a review. Even under-ripe, that melon was many times sweeter than any of the ones in the store! And even more surprising, the seeds were sweet, too! I'd never heard of a watermelon with seeds that were tasty. I knew they were edible, but the ones I'd bitten into ranged from bland to "yuck". When I accidentally crunched into a kaho seed, the flavor was good enough to eat by itself! If it grows half as well as it tastes, then this is definitely being added to my collection!

Review:

I was really excited growing these but was equally disappointed when I ate it. Average flavour but there were more seeds than flesh. Not an enjoyable eating experience.
