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? 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!

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.

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.

Review:

This is the second year I'm growing PGdR here in central England. We've had a mild spring and the early-mid summer period has been warmer than usual. The PGdR were grown in a polytunnel and have done well. The first melons ripened in the second week of August (which is early for the UK). I also grew Uzbek Sweetness but these plants were overwhelmed by downy mildew by early August. However despite being side by side, the PGdR plants have been only mildly affected and have produced a crop of on average 2 melons per plant. The ripe PGdR is IMO, everything an European cantaloup should be: fragrant, juicy, very sweet with a complex flavour. Having had success with this variety 2 years in a row, I would say that this melon is an excellent choice for those of us in short-season areas.

Review:

Just ate half a melon in one sitting. I don't see how this one could be improved. Sweet, juicy, fine-grained, perfumed. I had never grown this one before and was not sure when to harvest. I noticed they had "split" at the end one morning and brought them in right away--there was not the slightest defect in the taste even though I suppose they were overripe?. Absolutely divine, will definitely grow every year.
