Kajari Melon

         
 
38 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.

What are the pros? Very sweet, when allowed to ma

What are the cons? New to me.

Review:

A few melons came on even when the temperature was over 100 degrees. The vines climbed a fence and produced a lot of smallish melons. When the white stripes turn gold, it's ripe. Allowing it to turn more an antique gold made them sweeter. The only problem is ants, which cut a hole in one. Birds liked the seeds, of course, and we had them coming up in odd places, which was fine.This year, a lot more will be planted tho we like watermelon more. Very good melon.

What are the pros? Easy, productive, very tasty

What are the cons? long growing season

Review:

Did these for the first time this yr. Planted too late in the season and wasn't able to allow them to fully ripen on the vine, so picked almost fully green to save from rot. Got about 14 of them, around softball size. Reeeeally tasty melons, I wasn't sure if they'd be palatable since I read honeydew wouldn't ripen after picking and these seem similar, but they did indeed ripen. Super fragrant and as others said the smell will fill the room. They look awesome too. These are basically, at the end of the day, really cool looking honeydew melons as far as taste/smell/consistency. I brought a cpl to an indian fellow who cuts my hair, he was quite stunned to see them here and asked where I bought them haha. I'd definitely recommend these to others. I did not personally find the consistency to be like "an overripe banana" as another reviewer commented.

This has great reviews but I found the texture to be like an overripe banana. It wasn't something I wanted to keep eating.

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.
