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:

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.

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. :)

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.
