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? 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.

What are the pros? Taste, early

What are the cons? Seeds

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.
