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:

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.

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.

What are the pros? Superb to anything in stores.

What are the cons? Spits easily if watered late.

Review:

This melon has a superb flavor to any cantaloupe sold. Can be easily grown on fence as well as garden. Do not water as melons ripen or will split. As bad as tomatoes with too much water at ripening stage. Does not slip from the vine so can be trellaced. Don't recommend sharing these as they are so good my wife eats them and does not like cantaloupe from grocery stores.

What are the pros? Flavor is heavenly

What are the cons? Slow to mature in Seattle

Review:

The first year I grew these melons in raised beds outside and they did not ripen until October and then only 3 were edible. They were about the size of a baseball with bright orange flesh enough for one person and I didn't want to share. The next time I started them in my greenhouse and planted them in a raised bed. More ripened, however, this year I started seed in the raised heated bed and they are growing like crazy, flowers bloomed early June and small melons are now visible and will expect fruit in early August. Early Maturity in Greenhouse only, Seattle summers are to unpredictable to grow in outside beds.

Review:

I have never been a melon fan at all. My daughter loves any kind of melon so I decided to try something new that appeared to have soft, non-grainy flesh. As I read the flavor pallets of several melons, I chose this one and another french melon. The first year I only got two melons but they were the most fragrant and incredibly flavorful melons I have ever smelled and tasted! Everyone loved this melon. They're small so they feed a small family well without going bad. In fact, they rarely even make it to the fridge. They don't keep very well so they're a melon to share. We loved them so much we saved the seeds and grew again last year and this year. We've added compost to them this year and they are COVERED in flowers. We're also trying growing them vertically. I'm really excited for the harvest and to see how prolific they are this year! Incredible melon, I'll be seed saving and sharing with my friends for sure!
