Charentais Cantaloupe
Cucumis melo L. Cantalupensis Group

85 days — Originating from the region of France of the same name, this variety of true cantaloupe is revered. It is also known by the name 'French Gourmet'.

The fruits are about five inches in diameter weighing about two pounds with rinds that are smooth, thin skinned, and light green maturing to a creamy color. The flesh is salmon colored, very fragrant and tasty. About 46 seeds per one gram packet.

Small-Medium, Big Flavor
Perfect and beautiful juicy salmon-colored flesh, extremely flavorful. Far more flesh than seed. Whitish rind is smoother than what you see at the grocery store. We planted in dirt/compost mounds in mid-April and had several ready in mid-August. Great germination rate, and the plants were very sturdy through weather variances. Pests were easily deterred with soap & pepper water.
