  • Regular price $4.49

Try something deliciously different, with Charentais — small French melons with or without netting that originally developed in west-central France. At their best, it is said Charentais are more succulent than North American cantaloupe.

A famous superb heirloom French melon--super sweet and very fragrant. Light grey-green skin, smooth round 2-to 3-lb fruit, bright orange flesh. These are top sellers at high-dollar markets. This is always a favorite here. We just love the sweet flesh that is so firm.

Exquisite old-fashioned flavor.

Succulent and sweet, this hybrid version of the heirloom 'Petit Gris de Rennes' looks and tastes like the French original but is protected by modern disease resistance. Unique greenish-yellow, green-sutured rind attracts attention, as does the intoxicating scent. Creamy and smooth — practically melts in your mouth! The sweetness is accented with hints of exotic spice. Can be cut from the vigorous, healthy vines when skin yellows and rind gives slightly from your touch. High resistance to Fusarium wilt races 0–2; and intermediate resistance to Alternaria blight.
