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? Flavor, Aroma

What are the cons? Yield

Review:

The flavor of this variety is exceptional. Very sweet and fragrant. As the melons ripen their scent fills the air. Unfortunately the yield was very low for me. I had a very difficult time finding any growing info or tips on this variety but I just went the common sense route and will again. Even the low yield was well worth the time and garden space!

What are the pros? Easy, richly sweet

What are the cons? All ripe at once, don't keep.

Review:

We grew these 2 years ago and they were our first melons to grow. Very easy, but all were ripe within a week and they don't keep well. Gave tons away and many went bad before they could be eaten. Their flavor was wonderful. Richly sweet.

Very easy to grow, these melons produce prolifically and in a very short growing season--you end up with lots of sweet melons quickly!

What are the pros? looks delish

What are the cons? poor germination

Review:

I was so excited to grow these last year. I planted all my seeds (some in the garden and some in seed pots indoors, to use as transplants). Not one seed germinated. I was so disappointed as I really wanted to try these melons based on the stellar reviews. It logos so incredibly delicious and juicy in the pics. I received another packet for my recent birthday, so I am looking forward to attempting to grow these again this year. Hopefully, it as just a bad pack of seeds last year. I will review again if I have good successes with it later this year.

Review:

These are my favorite melon. There is no other melon as delicious. They are very early and grow well but the first few melons crack just before ripe.
