Charentais Melon

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.

What are the pros? Taste, smell, ease of growth

What are the cons? Quickness to start rotting

Review:

Grew melons for the first time this year, including these beauties. Absolutely delicious. Today I made melon ice cream from the overripe and splitting ones, and it's incredible. I'm confident I could have frozen pieces as well to use later.

What are the pros? Flavor

What are the cons? difficult to grow and pick

Review:

I grow melons in a hoophouse, we control the water and heat, and side by side this melon was the worst performer, Susceptible to mildew, over 85% split on blossom end even before ripe. Subtle clues only to indicate ripeness. Even when rotting it was tightly attached to vine.

What are the pros? taste , ease to grow

What are the cons? need to guard against aphids

Review:

as good as the ones I had in the Charente region of France, which is very good. Prolific in area 8 (Austin) with two or more melons per vine. VERY susceptible to melon aphids and these will decimate the entire melon patch in a few days.

Ate 1st 2-3lb melon today and wow love em! Melon was very fragrant and slipped right off the vine. Started 2 plants indoors and set out early. Plants didn't start growing good till it got hot. Both plants are huge now and got 10 getting close to being ripe! Multiple smaller 1's just starting too. Gotta new favorite now.

What are the pros? heady perfumed sweetness

What are the cons? none

Review:

This was my first melon. It ripened in June during our drought. My daughter [very picky eater] ate most of our melon, right down to the skin -- no rind. I kept the bed moist; the melon shaded from strong sunlight; elevated it from the soil on an overturned pot; fed it lightly each week; and it slipped off the vine into my hand. A true gift and delight. I don't really like melon myself, but saved the seed for next year.
