Kajari Melon 1 oz

1 Review | Write a Review
This amazing early Indian melon was collected by Joseph Simcox. The fruits are a brilliant copper-red and are striped in green and cream, making this an extremely unusual and beautiful melon. The pale green flesh is sweet, aromatic and slightly musky in taste. Joe believes that this melon originated in the Punjab, and Joe spent more than 8 years trying to find seeds of this extremely interesting variety. Vine produces lots of 2 lb fruit.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, attractive

What are the cons? Susceptible to powdery mildew


I've planted these melons 2 summers in a row. This variety is the first to come up and the most robust-looking. The vines grow large quickly. They are fairy prolific, producing multiple fruits on each vine without my help. If I do help pollinate, then I end up with dozens of smallish melons (so I don't recommend that, unless you want to end up with multitudes of tennis-ball-sized, albeit tasty and gorgeous, fruits). The fruits are extremely attractive and slip off the vine when ripe. It's easy to tell when they're about to slip because the fruits change color dramatically over the course of a day or two. While Kajari melons are not the best-tasting green-fleshed melons I've had (they are like honeydews with overtones of something else I can't put my finger on), they do still taste good, sweet and refreshing, and are satisfying to grow. The plants aren't picky, aside from a tendency towards powdery mildew. Much easier to grow than Petit Gris de Rennes.
