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? 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.

What are the pros? prolific, beautiful plant

What are the cons? None

Review:

I grew these with several other melon and it’s by far my favorite melon by look. It looks so beautiful and prolific. I don’t have the skill to know when would be the right time to harvest at its peak since it is the first time I am growing these... by far I can say I successfully planted them in my garden. I have 10 of 2.5lbs each fruit in 1 plant. I harvested 1 fruit that had a sheen of yellow, it was a few days shy away from being totally at peak. Nonetheless it was ripe and sweet but still have the crunchy flesh. I still have about 9 fruit in my garden can’t wait to harvest them in the following days.

Review:

These are my favorite melons, they are so sweet and fragrant. They crack easily and should be picked when they start to color.
