This sweet French heirloom cantaloupe is considered the most flavorful melon in the world. It fits in the palm of your hand, perfect for a single serving. Ribbed fruits contain juicy, bright orange flesh and a heavenly fragrance. Grown in the tranquil Poitou-Charentes region since 1920, Charentais is the standard in France and Europe.
Most Americans only enjoy melons at breakfast or barbecues, but these sweet fruits are delicious in salads, cold soups, even drinks. What we buy at the supermarket isn't even a decent cantaloupe. Taste a Charantais and you'll never go back.
An excellent melon for cool climates and small gardens, this is also a winner for market growers and always sells out quickly. 85 days.
