Cantaloupe - Charentes

I grew these this summer. They were Great. Ours got bigger than grapefruit. Maybe because we have so many wonderful spring rains.
(Cucumis melo) A true French cantaloupe that originated in the Poitou-Charentes region circa 1920. Considered by many to be the most divine and flavorful melon in the world. Smooth round melons mature to a creamy gray with faint ribs. Sweet, juicy, orange flesh with a heavenly fragrance. Typically the size of a grapefruit and weighing 2 pounds-perfect for two people. 75-90 days.
Planting Instructions:
Direct Seed 1" Deep
Seeds to Hill - l to 8 Seeds
Thin to 3-4 Plants
Light - Full Sun
Green Thumb Tip Melons love heat. Sow seeds outdoors in 12" diameter hills after danger of frost has passed and soil has warmed. Space hills 6' apart in all directions. Seeds will germinate in 4-10 days. Can also be started indoors 2-3 weeks before last frost.
