115 days — Although known as 'Honeydew' or 'Honey Dew' melons here in the United States, they are called 'White Antibes Winter' melons in Europe[1] and 'Bailan' or 'Wallace' melons in China.[2]

The fruits have a smooth, creamy white skin with lime-green flesh that is incredibly sweet with a small seed cavity. They are typically seven to nine inches long and five to six inches in diameter weighing three to six pounds. They store and ship well.

Prior to their import into the United States in about 1911, they had been grown in France and Algieria for decades. About 35 seeds per one gram packet.
Prolific and Delicious
Planted 12 seeds in an 8'x8' planter bed over memorial day and let 5 of them grow wild. Now at Labor day we have picked and eaten ~20 honeydews that were some of the best melons we have ever had, super juicy. Still have about five little guys left of the vines. The first one to get ripe started to crack a little, at that point I started to test the rest and they have been slipping off the vines very easily over the last few weeks.
