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.

What are the pros? Incredible flavor and aroma!

What are the cons? None

Review:

A member of the Garden Club of Olympia grew this variety in his garden and shared one of the fruits with me. The melon tastes good when it is harvested while the outer skin is still dark green, but if you wait until the skin turns yellow, the flavor and aroma are intense! Yes, I saved the seeds!

Grew this variety in strawbale. This, of several melon varieties, was the first to set fruit and the first to ripen. Very Hardy, somewhat bug resistant.

What are the pros? Super Easy

What are the cons? Deer love them

Review:

These melons were so easy to grow 100% germination rate, Unfortunately the deer loved them just as much as me so I only got to eat a couple. The melons do split easily when they are close to ripe, i employed the solution of holding off from watering when the melons were almost done, if they do split fill the crack with dichotomous earth powder or even ductape it until the melon is ripe

What are the pros? Great flavor, low maintenance

What are the cons? Rind splits

Review:

This melon has a rich flavor unique to melons. Almost a candy like sugar taste. My children love it. The plant is easy to maintain and requires very little oversight. Fruit set evenly across the plants and are prolific. The major downside is some of the melons will split (typically at the head or bottom of the melon). If left on the vine too long they will split enough to allow bugs into the fruit. My sense is this is due to uneven moisture and/or dry conditions. At times, the splitting occurs when the melons are ripe and ready to pick so the splitting is not a problem. Otherwise, you are forced to pick slightly early and the fruit is left with the typical grocery store "stiff" fruit condition and less than optimal sweetness. Still edible but not perfect. I've grown them 2 seasons. Decent results.

These are great and sweet. I highly recommend these for a gardner who are novice and do not want to be dissappointed. Prolific, great taste and hardy plant.
