Melon, Hara Madhu

76% of 100

90 days. This gorgeous teardropshaped melon from Punjab, India, is dripping with sweetness, boasting a sky-high sugar brix level and exquisite flavor. Introduced in 1967 by Punjab Agricultural University in Ludhiana, India, the Hara Madhu is an improvement on several old local landrace varieties from what is now the state of Haryana, just south of Punjab. Its incredible flavor is a testament to the local flavors of the region. It is improved to grow vigorously in a wide range of climates, including the U.S. 10-12ft long vines produce plenty of 2-3 pound fruit that are striped green and cream, with a white flesh and have a shorter shelf life.
