'Kajari' is a 2 pound melon with copper skin and green stripes. Its light green flesh has a sweet flavor. This Indian melon was brought to the United States by Joseph Simcox.
In our experience, the texture of Kajari is slightly grainy, but it may have been the conditions we grew our plants in. The fun-size fruits are perfect for making a mini melon bowls.
Sowing Melon Seeds:
Sow seeds outdoors after the last frost date when the soil is warm, 1/2 inch deep. Sow in hills that are spaced 5 feet apart and thin to 3 plants per hill. Or sow in rows 2 feet apart. Full sun.
