    • Choose a location: Kajari melons grow best in a sunny location with well-drained soil that is rich in organic matter. Choose a spot in your garden that gets at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day.

    • Prepare the soil: Before planting, amend the soil with compost or aged manure to improve soil fertility and drainage. Kajari melons prefer soil with a pH of 6.0-7.0.

    • Plant seeds or seedlings: Kajari melons can be grown from seeds, which can be started indoors 4-6 weeks before the last frost or directly in the garden bed after the danger of frost has passed. When planting, space the seeds or seedlings 2-3 feet apart and 1 inch deep.

    • Provide proper care: Kajari melon plants require consistent moisture, so keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. Fertilize the plants with a balanced fertilizer every 2-3 weeks, following the manufacturer's instructions. Mulch around the plants to help retain moisture and suppress weeds. Monitor the plants for pests and disease, and take appropriate action if necessary.

    • Harvest the melons: Kajari melons are typically ready to harvest 60-70 days after planting. The fruit is ripe when it turns yellow and is slightly soft to the touch. Use a knife or scissors to cut the fruit off the vine, leaving a short stem attached. The melons can be eaten fresh or used in recipes for desserts, smoothies, or salads
