Kajari Melon

         
 
41 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.

Looks cool but rind splits

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.

What are the pros? Pretty, tasty, heat tolerant

What are the cons? Cucumber beetles loved too!

Review:

Easy to grow once germinated, but low germ rate about 30%. Taste like a standard melon with a an exotic spiced aftertaste. Would grow again, seemed very tolerant of Texas dry heat.

What are the pros? LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT!!

What are the cons? NONE

Review:

In TEXAS it is hard to find plants that stand up well to the heat. This has been a rainy late to plant start in 2019. This plant is going strong in JULY. It is the BEST cross between a honey dew and cantaloupe melon. I so love the flavor. Can't wait to see if this plant will produce thru the fall without replanting. Planted from seed, NO problems with bugs in my organic garden and grew really fast. My ladybugs love hanging out with them too!! Thank you Jess & Sweet Miah of Roots and Refuge farm =.)

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.

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.
