D'Alger Melon

         
 
3 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
Another colorful ancient French Cantaloupe (possibly from Africa); it is definitely one of the oldest. Ribbed fruit are dark green (almost black) with silver splashes. As they get ripe, they turn yellow with near red splashes. The flesh is highly perfumed and very smooth and creamy. Compact vines; quality French seed from Bruno Defay. Pre-1800 Heirloom.

Review:

This year we added a melon patch to the garden. We grew all kinds of melons, but this was by far our favorite. It stood up to the dry and hot Georgia summer. The taste was sweet and perfumyish - not a word but the best description. It was so productive that we gave away melons and even froze some. By the way the seeds were a year old and we had no problem with germination. Planting this one again.

Review:

I planted this and the Charentais. Possibly D'Alger suffered from the comparison, since Charentais was far and away the most delicious melon I've tasted. But even allowing for the competition, D'Alger didn't have a lot of flesh - there's a very large cavity inside - the color was pale, and the taste was fairly wooden. Makes for an interesting color/texture in the melon patch, but I wouldn't plant it again.
