85 days. A famous superb heirloom French melon—super sweet and very fragrant. Light grey-green skin, smooth, round 2-to 3-lb fruit, bright orange flesh. This is top sellers at high-dollar markets. This is always a favorite here. We just love the sweet flesh that is so firm.

What are the pros? good if you can catch it

What are the cons? splits

Review:

This was a tasty melon if I was able to get one before it exploded. They split in spectacular fashion at the flower end of the fruit. The whole bottom would blast out as if it gave birth. Their slip was a little misleading too. Some would come off readily, while others would not slip easily, but also be explodingly ripe.

What are the pros? Flavour

What are the cons? Mice in garden loved them

Review:

Like the header says: I hate cantaloupe! I grew these for a friend who said you can't grow cantaloupe in BC. She was wrong on that score as these grew very easily if a bit slowly. I wasn't sure I was going to get anything but the vines had made their way into the grass along side my garden and I almost stepped on one. There were actually several on each vine but the mice got there before I did. I managed to segregate the one lovely little melon that was left and let if grow for a couple of more weeks. I can NOT believe the flavor! It was so sweet and juicy! I am a convert and will be growing these every year. The mice and my friend will have to grow their own as I will be guarding these quite jealously. :)

What are the cons? Not a huge producer

Review:

I am very happy with the Charentais Melon. This was the first year that I've tried it. The plants grew easily, with no fuss. They withstood a couple dry spells and a lot of heat. I was a little let down that they did not produce more melons. I had seven plants and have harvested 6 melons leaving 2 more on the live to finish ripening. They are wonderful melons. Personal sized with a delicious smell and taste. Easy to open and prepare. I will definitely be planting a great many of these next year. VERY happy with them.

What are the pros? Taste is pretty good

What are the cons? Subject to mildew, aphids and

Review:

This was a miss for me. They were subject to powdery mildew, and were an aphid delight. The flowers stayed strong despite this and the few melons that survived (and didn't split) were tasty, but too similar to other antelope types that do better in my zone.

What are the pros? Sweet, prolific, very hardy

What are the cons? None

Review:

Charentais have different variety. I found this out once my plant started to fruit. I had 3 different charentais variety sprouted, I bought 1 pack of seed here in this sight. I did my researched and found that charentais have several varieties a few are Escorial, Perseus, Savor, and Alvaro to name a few. Now what I have sprouted in my garden are Savor which are the once with smooth and deep ribbing. Perseus with heavily netting and slightly ribbed. Alvaro with grey-ish color no netting but with hair and ribbed. They are about 2-3 lbs each. All are prolific, taste a bit different in each. Perseus is sweet with perfect texture with the hint of honey after taste. Alvaro sweet a little crunchy on the texture, but maybe I pick it a little early. Savor have not had the chance to taste yet. But by far they’re all perfect to grow in the garden. I also have Petit gris de rennes, it is my favorite of all, just perfect size, taste and texture.
