85 days. Dense fruit has orange flesh that is superbly sweet, flavorful, and perfumed. This variety is early and is somewhat adapted to cooler climates. The fruit weighs around 2-4 lbs and has a gray-green rind. This fine French variety is of the best quality and is the favorite melon of the French melon expert and author Bruno Defay. Rare in the USA. This is one of our most-requested market melons; specialty growers love them because they command top prices! We continue to receive rave reviews about this mel-on, which is surely one of the best Charentais types. Fruit is ready to harvest when the blossom end is slightly soft and the fruit becomes aromatic. This fruit is highly coveted for gourmet flavor. Be sure to keep an eye on the melons as they get close to maturity; they are crack prone!
