Kajari Melon

  This is a rare and unusual melon from India, and is believed to have originated in the Punjab region. It has dark green stripes that turn a deep orange as it ripens making it a real eye catcher in the garden and at farmers markets. The flesh is a medium green to light yellow with a taste very similar to a honeydew. Some describe it as having a hint of summer apple. 

  Plant seeds in full sun after the danger of frost has passed. Sow seeds at a depth of 1/2"  in groups of 3-4 seeds, spaced 3-4 feet apart in each direction. The fruits average between 2-3 lbs and start maturing in 70-80 days, making it a good choice for growers with short seasons. The orange stripes appear as the melons ripen and the fruit will slip from the stem when fully ripe. Each plant will produce from 6-8 melons. 

  Any unripe melons can be picked after the first frost and they will continue to ripen in storage. Kajari melons have a long shelf life especially if refrigerated. The delicious flavor, good production, short growing season, and long shelf life, give Kajari's an excellent potential as a market melon. And a great addition to any home garden.
