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? Great Flavor

What are the cons? Didnt grow enough

Review:

Great tasting melon. Very sweet. The flesh gets so close to the skin, that the skin breaks apart while I was eating it in slices. Might be better to cut in half and scoop out with a spoon. Will grow again next year.

What are the pros? very early and vigorous

What are the cons? poor flavor , lots of seeds

Review:

Well, first I'll say that if you want early Kaho is your watermelon. It beat out all others I grew this year by a mile.The vine was strong growing and produced 2 melons, it tried to produce more but couldn't. 1-2 seems to be the norm for me here. This isn't really fair as this was an awful year with cold, wet, hard to grow anything weather, but the flavor was lacking. It tasted more like a cucumber than a watermelon. Not bad just mild for my tastes. Could be the weather and all my melons might be like that. It was also 40% seeds. We'll see as I harvest the rest of my melons , how Kaho stacks up flavor wise. But if early is important to you, you can't beat this one.

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!
