85 days. Dense, 2-lb fruits have 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? 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.

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

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Powdery mildew

Review:

I grew these melons in a raised bed. Well, to say I grew them is a strong statement, I tossed some seeds in a raised bed and proceeded to ignore it. To my delight, besides some late season powdery mildew, they flourished. The only downside is that I was never able to taste them since I was away traveling around harvest time so they rotted on the vine. Imagine my confusion when the following year dozens of melon seeds sprouted amidst the pepper plants I was now growing there. I’ve never known a melon to overwinter in my zone 6. Long story short, better luck next time!

What are the pros? Delicious, good for the north

What are the cons? powdery mildew prone

Review:

Planted these as an afterthought and was pleasantly surprised. Planted seeds outside directly last week of may (zone 5). Seedlings were attacked by cucumber beetles, which set them back, but they kept growing. Only gave them a top dress of compost for fertilization. Neglected them, no irrigation, part shade, coolish Michigan weather. Still gave me a half dozen softball size melons. Very sweet and delicious. Despite uneven rainfall, I didn't have the problem with splitting that some have described. Late in the season, leaves developed powdery mildew,but I let it go as the melons were almost ripe. I think if I actually take care of them, give them some sun, and fertilize and water properly, they will produce nicely for me. I look forward to trying them again next year.
