A pre-1800s variety that was long ago preserved by Carmelite monks in France. Round/oblate, slightly ribbed 1.5 to 4 lb fruit. Sweet, juicy orange flesh. Reputed cold tolerance too!

Not so sweet melon cups

What are the pros? even sized

What are the cons? Not that sweet, not productive

Review:

I've found this melon quite bland. I ate it of out duty for most of them. But, flavor aside, it was a cute, even-sized fruit with relatively thick flesh.

What are the pros? Very prolific!

What are the cons? Flavor mild, not as sweet

Review:

High producer. We had sufficient rain, that we only watered couple of times. The flesh is soft, and very mild. I would recommend for pairing with other fruit, because alone, it seemed bland. Our American tastes are tuned to the sweetest Honey Rock hybrids, and I was surprised that it had good melon flavor, but without the sweetness I expected. Because of the good rains we had in Agust, I also wondered if some of the sugars were diluted.

What are the pros? taste!

What are the cons? none

Review:

It was easy to tell when ripe, it turns orangish color. Good producer, good sweet aromatic flavor. Texture is just right but when it becomes overripe, it did get bit soft. Easy to grow. Will grow for farmers market.

Id marry this melon

What are the pros? Cute, soft flesh, delicious!

What are the cons? None

Review:

This melon tasted really good! It's small, just a bit larger than a softball, but the flesh is really soft and flavorful. I only got a couple in my garden, but I think that's my fault, and due to insufficient watering. I will definitely grow this again.

What are the pros? taste, texture,

What are the cons? splits,

Review:

Wonderful little melon with great taste, texture and perfume. It will split but only the outer rind and this didn't effect the inside melon. Great melon overall.
