Madhu Ras, Rajasthan Honey Melon

         
 
9 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
This is a small but delicious melon from Rajasthan, India. The name Madhu Ras means honey melon, an appropriate name for such as sweet fruit. These melons thrive in the hot and dry conditions of Western India, and they will grow in similar conditions in the U.S. One of our favorites in trials, the flesh is soft and silky with a classic muskmelon taste. This is a rare find brought to us from botanical explorer, Joseph Simcox, who found this special heirloom at a market in Delhi, India.

Review:

Wow, what a performer. I’ve had these seeds for a couple of years and dropped them around a young tree in a raised be just on a whim, really didn’t think they would do anything. Wow was I wrong. This melon is amazing. Fruit had matured in different sizes, small 1 lb at first, but just pulled a 4lb er off today. Cut them open to the smell of fresh honey, and the taste is super sweet. Plant has done amazingly in our Texas heat, humidity or extreme dry it doesn’t seem to care, has withstood typical garden pests with no problem. Put fruit out early and is still setting fruit and producing great tasting melons.

What are the pros? Survives 95? & great taste

What are the cons? Seems sensitive to full sun

Review:

This was our first attempt growing melons in our raised gardens in SW Florida resulting in 2 melons from 1 plant (2 seeds planted). The taste is sweet with a softer texture than supermarket cantaloupes. Delicious! There was some insect damage to the leaves and also some apparent leaf bleaching from the Florida sun. No insecticides were used. A shade cloth might be warranted.

Review:

This was our first time growing melons of any kind and I am so glad we tried these! We have harvested about 5 from our vine here in Denver starting as early as July and continuing now through September. Our toddler loves them and they are the perfect size for her to eat. Highly recommend!

Review:

This was my first time growing melons. I only grew one to try because of limited space in my garden this year. Easy to start from seed. The plant grew beautifully. I harvested our first melon this morning. I read around on the internet about what signs to look for: skin just turning slightly yellow/ orange, small crack on the vine just about the fruit, no slipping off the vine, just tug or cut, and a sweet, wonderful aroma when smelling the skin. All of the above was apparent this morning on one of them. It was easy to slice through, and the taste is amazing. Sweet but not overpowering sweetness. There are about 5 or 6 more growing on the plant. I do live in desert conditions, but I grew this in a lasagna/ Hugelkultur garden. Watered every day. And the plant did awesome in our 118-degree heat.

Review:

I just harvested my first Madhu Ras here at latitude 32.46N.Zone 8a. Performs well in the heat and humid environment (95-100F or 35-37C). I live in a rural area with deep sandy soil. Normally I trellis the melons to keep the rodents from feasting at night, but this one I found in the grass by its strong scent. I knew it was ready. It did not slip from the vine. I cut it this evening, and the flavor and sweetness is outstanding. I would like to thank Baker Creek for finding these rare varieties.
