Product information "Cantaloupe 'Charentais'"

The small, characteristically dark green, longitudinally striped 'Charentais' sugar melon is one of the best-known melons. In the summer, the intensely fragrant sugar melons pile up on the display areas of fruit departments, regardless of whether they are neighborhood stores or discount stores. As the undisputed leading product in the summer fruit department, the 'Charentais' also looks exceptionally good in one's own garden and offers an invaluable advantage: in contrast to the fruit counter, the fruit can be harvested when it is really ripe.

Advantages of 'Charentais':
  •     Sugar en masse, it seems that the fruits compensate for their lack of size with sweetness
  •     Fully ripe fruits exude Mediterranean flair, intensely fragrant
  •     Incredibly productive, 4-6 fruits per plant
  • Ripeness/Harvest Period September
  • Final height 15cm to 20cm
  • Final width 140cm to 2m
  • Available May, June
  • Sweetness sweet
  • Soil moderately heavy, light, slightly alkaline, neutral, slightly acidic
  • Location full sun
  • Flower Colour yellow
  • Leaf Colour green
