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? Taste

What are the cons? My climate for growing

Review:

I grew these this year in hardiness zone 8b. Our weather this year wasn't ideal for melons. So far I have only gotten one fully ripe melon from three plants. I have to say this one fully ripe melon was the best melon I have ever had. Store bought melons or any other melons I have gotten from the farmers markets, does not even compare. It was so sweet and juicy. My 6 year old even asked me why I was eating it so fast... my reply was because it is soooo good. My recommendation for anyone growing and the PNW in Washington, around the Puget sound area. Grow them in a green house or hoop house. The only reason why my one ripe melon became ripe was I put a hoop house over it. Since doing that I now have 4 more melons that will hopefully ripen. But it is a race against the cold weather and rain which seems to already be here.

What are the pros? Sweet flavor and fragrance

What are the cons? N/A

Review:

These melons are prolific and so, so sweet. My toddler who usually doesn't like cantaloupe devours these! Especially good if you chill them in the fridge before eating--so refreshing. In a summer of intense pest pressure on all my cucumbers and squash these have stayed very strong and pest free. I will grow these again and again!

What are the pros? Easy picking, delicious

What are the cons? None

Review:

I grew these this year and we have been unable to stop eating them. Not usually a cantaloupe fan. Off of two plants the kids pick about three ripe ones a week. The fragrance and smooth sweetness is addicting. We go outside and eat fresh cantaloupe and strawberries with our breakfast for the summer. I grew them on black tarp surrounded by peagravel with plenty of water to the roots and full 90 degree sun from 11 am on. End of August and still producing ripe fruit and blooms. Will be a staple in our garden each year. Thank you Baker Creek!

Review:

These are the best cantaloupe I've ever grown. They put a lot of fruit on the vine and the vines are quite vigorous. I didn't have one of mine split and a few I let go until even the stem was dead. The farther you let him go the better they're going to taste as long as you're not splitting which I had no issue with.

Perfect with prosciutto
Easy to Grow 3.0
EarlyMaturity 3.0
 

What are the pros? Rich complex flavor

What are the cons? Tends to split when ripe

Review:

My wife and I love a good melon slice wrapped in prosciutto. This is the best match we've ever found. The size is perfect for two and it is delicious just on its own as well. The problem with splitting doesn't really bother us since it's just going from our garden to table, but if we want one to give away, we find that a little less water and picking them about two days before fully ripe and finishing them indoors usually helps.
