Spied a few swelling little Madhu Ras Rajasthani honey melons the other night.
My first time growing this heirloom, open pollinated Cucumis melo variety, I picked it because it is desert adapted, coming from the Thar desert region of Rajasthan, India.
Another factor is that it is a small, palm sized melon: perfect for a single person.
I tried to persuade the vines up the trellis alongside the gem squash, but they are emphatic about other directions.
It’s that time of summer when I surrender to the lush growth which obliterates all my carefully planned pathways. Hoping these babes have good fortune and continue to swell to offer honey sweet, golden melon treats by mid August. Maybe.
