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 fruit weights about 2-4 pounds and are perfect for 2 servings. This rare heirloom was originally brought to Japan from China around the year 1912.

What are the pros? drippingly juicy

What are the cons? they look unripe when ripe!

Review:

Despite the coolest wettest summer in many years, these produced two (or maybe 3 or 4?) plants that made a huge tangle of vines all over my retaining wall and beyond, and set a number of fruits. I found one that looked almost ripe though the stem was firmly attached to the vine, and as i touched it, it split open and oozed all over. It was actually overripe! I quickly picked a number of rather unripe looking ones (10 on the first round, each about 8" long), cut one open and juice dripped out. The middle part appeared to be sugar mush with lots of seeds embedded. I scooped the seeds and sugar mush out, which left me with about a half inch layer of light orange flesh. But, oh, how sweet and juicy it is. Excellent flavor. You can eat it right up to the green rind. One was just enough for me. Will grow these again, though I'll give them more room next time.

What are the pros? disease resistant

What are the cons? very small & cracked open

Review:

The one good thing I can say about them is that they were healthy until the end. They survived a team of cucumber beetles that other melons did not. However, from the entire seed packet, only three melons produced: one the size of my hand that cracked open, one the size of a fig, and one the size of my hand that I was able to eat but did not really enjoy because of bland taste and seeds. I think these may do better in hotter June weather because they were a little pokey getting started.

What are the pros? Easy to germinate, hardy

What are the cons? None

Review:

Easy to germinate, hardy, beautiful, prolific. Started these guys early March. Germination rate is 100% so far. We have a long growing season in Georgia. They pop up in 3 days! Very pretty and low maintenance. They've been sprawling in my yard and after flowering and feeding them kelp, they are producing the cutest melons. They started flowering early May, and have had melons growing for 2 weeks. The melons are getting bigger every day. Generally very strong, except very attractive to aphids. Ample watering required, seem to love the heat here. I'm so in love with them, I can't stop growing more and I'm running out of room. So far, they're the best melon I've grown as far as health and production. This is my first time growing and I appreciate that these make it easy on me. I'm low on fertilizer that they need, but they've still done a great job. I'll be getting more seeds, and can't wait to gift my extra melons from them!

What are the pros? perfect small individual size

What are the cons? texture and color was off

Review:

We were really excited to try these melons and be able to offer a smaller orange variety for our market customers. Our area went through an exceptional drought and the very air was dry this year and we experienced above average in heat. These melons were hard to tell when ripe. The texture was mushy and the flavor was kind of bland for a watermelon, also the color was very pale even when left so long in the field they started rotting. It could very well have been the year as so many things were off. We have grown several types of watermelons and varieties that have high review and people usually love do not get that great of flavor in our climate, and ones that have average ratings get awesome flavor here. We will try these a few more times and see if it was the year or just our climate but they did not do great here so far.
