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.

Review:

I grew these for the first time on the plains of Colorado. Everyone loves them!! They are so sweet. They do split easily and by the time they slip off the vine they are too ripe. I will definitely grow these again!

Review:

This was my first attempt at growing melons. Seeds were germinated in February, and planted out in a polytunnel early June. We have just eaten our first PGdR: as expected it was fragrant, juicy and sweet with complex, almost savoury flavours. We have had a good summer for the south of England so it was probably a good year for melons. The charentais I grew alongside has yet to ripen. I anticipate the yield from the PGdR under my growing conditions to be only 1-2 per plant, each fruit weighing around 600-700g: not prolific but more than enough for our own consumption. This has been an encouraging experience so I would definitely grow PGdR again next year.

Review:

2010 - Was my first year of growing melons here in Seattle. Our summer weather is hard to predict, many years they are cool and short. So I decided to plant them under my dryer vent and was please to have a small handful of delightfully sweet melons that ripened in early October. Next year I'm going to try an underground heat source and a plastic cover to keep the heat in. Hoping this will help ripen them before early fall.

Review:

We grew 18 different melons this year and this was my favorite! Yes, it does split easily, and I found by the time it fully colors up it is overripe .. but the taste is always superb and well worth growing even in cool summer climates.
