85 days. A famous, superb heirloom. A French 2-3 lb. melon with light grey-green skin. The bright orange flesh is super sweet and very fragrant. This was my favorite melon in 2003. I just love the firm, sweet flesh. These are top sellers at high dollar markets.

Review:

I am currently on the look out for ripeness in my melon patch. This year I planted Petit Gris de Rennes, Golden Jenny, Noir de Carmes, Madhu Ras, Kazakh, Ashkahabad, Boule D’or, Delicious 51, Huerfano Bliss, Planters Jumbo, Cannary Melon, and Charentais. I didn’t know charentais have a few different varieties like Alvaro, Savor, Perseus etc., which by the way have different ways of ripening. Perseus which I have in my garden discribed as with netting and light ribbing, and as for Alvaro have a deep green ribbing and grey-greenish skin before ripening, Savor has only deep green ribbing no netting just light green skin and may turn a tan hue when ripe. All of these charentais I have in my garden, I was confused at first bcoz this was my first time successfully growing these in my garden and when they started fruiting they had different skins texture, and color which I started researching and found that not all of them were the same varities. As far as taste, I will update.

Review:

Last year I grew the Sweet Passion melon and thought that it was the sweetest melon yet. This year I tried the Charentais and discovered that it is even sweeter. The only drawback is that vigilance is required as they approach ripeness. When you see the melon acquire a tan hue it's time to pick. Otherwise it will split. Of course, the split ones can be trimmed away and still eaten. I will definitely grow this one again next year.

Review:

Grew for the first time in 2012 in the Atlanta area. Best tasting melon I have ever had. Split easily and I probably lost 50% of the melons because of that. Disease resistance is low to non-existance so the window of when they are ripe and when the summer heat and disease take it toll is only about 3 weeks for me. Somehow that makes the ones you do get taste better, reminds me of the times when you could only get fresh fruit and veggies when they were in season for where you live (instead of coming from Chili or whereever). Doubling the amount I will grow this year

Review:

I first tasted this melon in France 9 years ago. It was melon season and Charentais was in all of the markets. I had never seen a melon that small. It is a true cantaloupe and the taste is extraordinary! Delightfully sweet! I obtained the seeds from Baker and have been growing it every other year.
