85 days. A famous, superb heirloom. A French 2-3 lb. melon with light grey-green skin. The bright orange flesh is super sweet and very fragrant. This was my favorite melon in 2003. I just love the firm, sweet flesh. These are top sellers at high dollar markets.

Review:

Grew for the first time in 2012 in the Atlanta area. Best tasting melon I have ever had. Split easily and I probably lost 50% of the melons because of that. Disease resistance is low to non-existance so the window of when they are ripe and when the summer heat and disease take it toll is only about 3 weeks for me. Somehow that makes the ones you do get taste better, reminds me of the times when you could only get fresh fruit and veggies when they were in season for where you live (instead of coming from Chili or whereever). Doubling the amount I will grow this year

Review:

I first tasted this melon in France 9 years ago. It was melon season and Charentais was in all of the markets. I had never seen a melon that small. It is a true cantaloupe and the taste is extraordinary! Delightfully sweet! I obtained the seeds from Baker and have been growing it every other year.
