Product Description

Grow Heirloom Melons - Charentais Melon Seeds:

Renowned for its tropical, super-sweet taste and exotic perfume, Charentais Melon is the quintessential French melon. Almost one hundred years ago the Randon family brought the Charentais, widely considered one of the sweetest melons, to fruition. This grey-green gem has been blessing gardens ever since.

  • Planting Instructions

    When to plant:

    • Don’t plant your melon seeds until the soil is consistently above 70 Degrees F.

    How to plant:

    • Before planting, amend your soil with compost or aged manure so the melons have adequate nutrition.
    • When transplanting, give your melon seeds 36 to 40 inches of space so they can spread out.

    How to harvest:

    • Look for the rind color turning from green to yellow or tan. Harvest your melon when it is easy to pull from the vine, but not falling off.

     

    *Melons will generally flower before they bear fruit - this is normal and isn’t an indication that you won’t receive fruit! Pests and diseases are somewhat common with melons, so consistent attention is best.
