Noir de Carmes Melon

80 days. A beautiful and rare heirloom from France, and the famous "Black Rock" melon preserved by the Carmelite monks. It was mentioned by Mawe & Abercrombie in 1787. Nearly black in color, the fruit turns orange as it ripens. They are deeply ribbed and have smooth skin. The flesh is orange in color, thick, flavorful and perfumed. Excellent and unusual. The fruit weigh about 3-6 lbs. each.

What are the pros? Very prolific!

What are the cons? Flavor mild, not as sweet

Review:

High producer. We had sufficient rain, that we only watered couple of times. The flesh is soft, and very mild. I would recommend for pairing with other fruit, because alone, it seemed bland. Our American tastes are tuned to the sweetest Honey Rock hybrids, and I was surprised that it had good melon flavor, but without the sweetness I expected. Because of the good rains we had in Agust, I also wondered if some of the sugars were diluted.

What are the pros? taste!

What are the cons? none

Review:

It was easy to tell when ripe, it turns orangish color. Good producer, good sweet aromatic flavor. Texture is just right but when it becomes overripe, it did get bit soft. Easy to grow. Will grow for farmers market.

What are the pros? Cute, soft flesh, delicious!

What are the cons? None

Review:

This melon tasted really good! It's small, just a bit larger than a softball, but the flesh is really soft and flavorful. I only got a couple in my garden, but I think that's my fault, and due to insufficient watering. I will definitely grow this again.

What are the pros? taste, texture,

What are the cons? splits,

Review:

Wonderful little melon with great taste, texture and perfume. It will split but only the outer rind and this didn't effect the inside melon. Great melon overall.

What are the pros? grows well

What are the cons? splits open before ripe

Review:

These Noir de Carmes grew very well. Lots of little melons. But here in the heat of central Texas every single one of them is splitting open as it starts to turn a little yellow. So probably a better melon to grow in milder climates.
