According to Smart Seeds Emporium, "Kajari Melon is a small heirloom melon grown in the Punjab region of India. The fruit weigh 2 to 3 pounds and are delightfully fragrant. They taste like a ripe honeydew, and they look like beach balls!
Each vine produces 6 - 9 melons in a short season, only 60-70 days seeds to fruit. They can be planted only a few feet apart, seem to appreciate a trellis, and do better in partial shade than full sun. Any unripe melons can be picked after first frost and will continue to ripen in storage. A good keeper."
Sounds like a winner to me! Beautiful melons!! Today is July 21, 2020. We have roughly about 100 days before the first frost. I think I can make it! So, I purchased some seeds from above mentioned company, and planted on July 21st, 2020. Let's see what I can get! Follow my journey!

10/1/2020 My first Kajari Melon!!!!
10/21/2020 This morning, we harvested 11 Kajari melons! Looks fantastic, and taste awesome!! Very interesting. When I cut then, I have noticed that some of them are green inside, taste similar to honeydew melon, and I cut another one, it was more like cantaloupe. Picture on the right is little over ripe. I liked the picture on the left better. It could be caused by cross pollinate, because I have a couple of cantaloupe in the same field. But it's pretty far away...
