The Charentais Melon is a deliciously sweet french heirloom cantaloupe that dates back to around 1920. This melon has a light grey-green skin and bright orange flesh that is super sweet and fragrant. The firm, sweet flesh makes this melon perfect for snacking on or incorporating into recipes. 600mg ~ 25 seeds.

Direct seed 2 to 3 weeks after average last frost and when daytime soil temperatures are near 70°F. Or, start melon seed indoors 3-4 weeks before your anticipated planting date. Set transplants in the garden 2 to 3 weeks after danger of frost has passed. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 65-85 degrees. A few weeks before transplanting time, harden off plants by exposing them to an increasing number of hours outdoors each day. Delay transplanting until your soil has thoroughly warmed up in the spring.
