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.

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

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.

Review:

This is the first melon I've ever grown and it made me feel like a pretty impressive gardener! I started these outside in peat pots in late May and transplanted into the ground after a couple of weeks. The vines were healthy and vigorous and grew nicely along with Glass Gem corn, Navajo Winter watermelon and sunflowers. No pest or disease problems and I got a few melons off of two vines. Easily the best, sweetest tasting melon I've ever had. I picked each melon as soon as the skin started to develop a yellow tinge and this seems to be the trick to getting them before they split. I checked them every single day, I did lose one to splitting when I left it a day too long. They're a perfect size for two people to share and they're so fragrant! I'm looking forward to growing these again this year.

What are the pros? taste, color, easy to grow

What are the cons? none

Review:

I grew this melon and got beautiful, sweet melons with a unique taste. It had a honey taste to it. Super easy to grow but I would say if you are in a very warm environment or you get a lot of rain to definitely put your melons up off the ground and make sure the plants get some shade. Other than that I would grow these again.

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.
