Kajari Melon

         
 
45 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 

This amazing early Indian melon was collected by Joseph Simcox. The fruit is 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.

Review:

Great little melon. Nice for one or two people. Nice sweet flavor. Grew mine in Ohio with no issues. Trellis well. Some of mine split early but not a problem overall. No problem with disease or pest. Got 12 to 15 per vine. Would highly recommend!

What are the pros? Prolific

What are the cons? none yet

Review:

I planted all of my packet, I thought I was going to lose every plant due to bugs, these little direct sewen stubs with no leaves fought their way back from the brink of death and turned out to be a prolific producer. Very easy, hardy, and easy. Perfectly sized fruit, and by far one of the best tasting. Once I cut into it I can not stop eating it. Zero problems so far besides the bugs being attracted to it.

So Pretty and So Good
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.5
 

What are the pros? Love these and will grow again

What are the cons? Short harvest window

Review:

I planted these from seed sometime in March. Out of the six or so seeds I planted, I had 3 really strong plants and I transplanted in early May. They immediately took off and grew quite rapidly up our arched trellis. I was very surprised by how fast and how many fruit they have put on, harvesting our first melon in late June. Since then I have harvested over 20 melons, with probably 20-30 more growing on the vines. They have been super prolific and have stood up well in our Texas heat. I'm excited to see how they fare in August and if they will make it into fall. The taste of these is super sweet, a cross between a honeydew and cantaloupe. The only thing I have found difficult is the small window you have to harvest these. I have found that in our intense heat, it has been better to harvest these the night before even if they look like they could use another day or two. I made the mistake of leaving them to ripen more only to find the next evening the have split and burst like popcorn.

Looks cool but rind splits
Easy to Grow 3.0
EarlyMaturity 3.0
 

What are the pros? Conversation starter

What are the cons? rind splits in summer

Review:

Zone 9b. Direct sow March 2nd. April 27 first blossoms. May 28 first fruit set. July 3 first harvest. They grow fine and the vine is prolific, but every melon on 3 different vines in different shade microclimates all split the rind before they were completely ripe. Even under shade cloth, still split before ripe. No change in automatic watering during that time. Had one blow off the vertical trellis in wind. Flavor is decent, but not overly unique. Tigger melons seem to do better in my yard during the summer months (same bed the kajaris are currently in). I'll try more varieties but will personally retire kajari until I move out of this zone and can try again.
