Charentais - French Heirloom Melon
This sweet French cantaloupe is considered the most flavorful melon in the world. It fits in the palm of your hand, perfect for a single serving. Fruits are ribbed with 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 enjoy melons at breakfast or barbecues, but these sweet fruits are delicious in salads, cold soups and drinks. What we buy at the supermarket isn't even a cantaloupe. Taste a Charentais and you'll never go back.
An excellent melon for cooler climates, and small gardens, this is also a winner for market growers and always sells out quickly. 85 days.
