Rating:
96% of 100

85 days. Dense, 2-lb fruit has orange flesh that is superbly sweet, flavorful, and perfumed. This variety is early and well adapted to cool climates. The fruit weighs around 2 lbs and has a grey-green rind. This fine French variety is of the best quality and is the favorite melon of the French melon expert and author Bruno Defay. Rare in the USA. One of our most requested market melons; specialty growers love them because they command top prices! We continue to receive rave reviews about this melon, which is surely one of the best Charentais types.
