Kajari Melon

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 he 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? Prolific, sweet, and beautiful

What are the cons? none

Review:

I'm very pleased with this melon. It is well suited to the growing conditions of the southern San Joaquin Valley of California. I planted 40 of them in two rows, the most prolific vine had 16 melons on it in 90 days from germination. the least prolific had 9. The taste of the kajari is a sweet cross of a honey dew and a cantaloupe. It is a perfect size for a hand melon, roughly the size of a softball. The smell of this melon is wonderful and will fill your home if a few are left on the counter. I can not find a fault with this beauty five stars across the board.

What are the pros? Nice melon flavor

What are the cons? Pretty evasive

Review:

It was yummy, but small maybe a pound. Sure they get bigger then that, I grew this in a pot and found this melon on the ground, it had removed itself from the vine. Smelled sweet almost tropical. Tastes like a sweet mixture of a honey dew and cantaloupe, with a bit of saltiness. Seeds came out super easy and I am saving them to grow more. I didn't put much effort into this plant and only have a few fruits growing on it. Didn't know this one was even there until I found it on the ground. If I would have fertilized and watered more I may have gotten more and bigger fruit. I will for sure grown more of these, especially now that I have more seeds.

Review:

Bought and grew these in 2015, didn't get as many as i had hoped but that was my fault for planting too few plants and planting too close to my other melons. Heat tolerate, All melons were the same nice size. I'll be growing these at my new place this coming spring!

What are the pros? many fruit per plant

What are the cons? taste lacking, not sweet.

Review:

Took three years to grow this melon due to cucumber beetle larvae eating roots of vines. Drench with imidacloprid protected plants for the season. Fruits matured well and lasted in refrigerator well. Beautiful, but disappointed in taste. Not sweet as expected. Tasted like a very dull, bland honeydew. I have never given poor review on a plant before but very disappointed after 3 seasons of efforts.

Review:

This is our first time growing the wonderful Kajari Melon and certainly wont be our last! The taste is out of this world, could not compare to any other melon variety i have tried...and believe me I have tried an array! Abundant harvest, easy to grow and fun to talk about the origin from which its original home was. My only question is how can I save this seed in a easy and clean way?? I find it tricky due to the mucilaginous coating around each seed. I thought soaking it would help but it only ferments while doing so and is still tricky. I have to save this seed, it is so abundant with many in the melon, id be completely ignorant to ignore it wanting to be saved and replanted/ gifted to other farmer friends of mine! If any one can share their method, id much appreciate it! Thank you Baker Creek for providing unique and exquisite seeds, by far one of my favorite sites to purchase rare seeds from!!! :)
