85 days. Dense 2 lb. fruit have orange flesh that is superbly sweet, flavorful and perfumed. This variety is early and well adapted to cool climates. The fruit weigh around 2 lbs. and have a grey-green rind. This fine French variety is of the best quality and is the favorite melon of the French melon expert and author Bruno Defay. Rare in the USA. Our #1 requested market melon; specialty growers love them because they command top prices! We continue to receive rave reviews about this melon. Order early.

What are the pros? wonderful flavor

What are the cons? racoons like them too

Review:

Lovely melons, very sweet and flavorful. Relatively easy to grow, I"m one of those plant it and just let it go gardeners. Our fruits were a little smaller last year than average but it made these melons personal sized which was fine with us. Make sure these are planted in a fenced area that animals can not get in to. We grew these last spring and lost all but two melons to raccoons(literally the ONLY thing they stole from my garden), definitely fencing off that bed this year.

What are the pros? awesome taste, perfect size

What are the cons? split easily, not prolific

Review:

I've grown regular charentais b4, but this heirloom has much better flavor HANDS DOWN..almost carmelized or a brown sugar taste, VERY rich flavor! They are prone for splitting but nothing a piece of tape cant remedy. On more then one occasion i have had them completely explode on the blossom end as they neared ripening following a few heavy rains..it broke my heart to throw them in the mulch pile bc the smell coming from the melon was SO incredible. I grew them on black plastic with some slits and holes pierced in the plastic to prevent rain from pooling up. I only wish these melons were more prolific, i only got about 2 melons per vine. My goal this year is to pick them RIGHT as the rind STARTS to turn yellow bc if u wait till its completely yellow it is slightly over ripe & the texture is a little soft. I've grown several types of melons in previous yrs, MN midgets, hales best & sweet granite R 2 muskmelony..for now my melons r PGdR, ambrosia & creme dela creme(hybrids).

What are the pros? Production, Flavour

What are the cons? Nagging wife

Review:

Got these seeds just to be different. My wife was angry at me for getting them because she is stuck in her ways when it comes to what fruits should looks like and shouldn't have any unusual names. Then the vine grew and produced many very attractive cute 3 to 4 lb fruit. She then got interested but still was not happy with me not getting the supermarket variety cantaloupe. Then they got ripe and I brought them home and she tasted them and the kids loved the flavour and she said it was amazing. So we are growing them again next year!

What are the pros? TASTY

What are the cons? none

Review:

I trialed 12 varieties of melon over the past couple of years, looking for one to grow and save seed. This one came out on top. It is easily the tastiest melon I've eaten-- exceptionally sweet, almost tropical. The melons are a good size for 2 people or 1 hungry person, a little larger than a good-sized grapefruit. I got 3-5 of them from a vine. 85 days, give or take, as advertized. All around, a superior melon.

What are the pros? Sweet smelling, taste great

What are the cons? Splits

Review:

Sweetest melon we've grown. After tasting this, the family didn't want any of the other melons we grew. Did great in our Central California heat and drought. Very prolific. Continues to produce all season. You have to watch them when they are ready- they can split. Also, made a newbie mistake and planted it by a watermelon, so some melons cross pollinated. I will definitely plant this again.
