Charentias Melon Seeds
Charentais Melon Seeds.
This well known French melon variety is world famous for its dark orange, sweet and fragrant flesh. It grows well even in cooler areas. Fruits are smooth-skinned and weigh about 2 lbs. You won't find Charentais in your grocery store -- it's thin skin and high sugar content make it fragile to ship when ripe. Enjoy its vine-ripened perfection straight from your garden. If starting seeds indoors, don't move out until late spring has stabilized. Allow 2' between seedlings. Can be direct seeded 1/2 inch deep, 12" apart, then thinned to 2' apart. Keep will watered during growth stage, then water less when fruits reach 4' diameter. 75 days.
- Package CONTAINS: 25 untreated seeds.
