Organic Charentais Melon - 2g Packet

Days to Maturity: 75-90 Days to Germination: 4-10 Temp Preference: 65-90 °F 

Seeding Depth: 1” Plant Spacing: 6’  Plant Height: 36 - 48” Row Spacing: 6’ Full sun

Sow seeds outdoors, 6 - 8 seeds in 12" diameter hills, after danger of frost has passed and soil has warmed. Space hills 6' apart in all directions or, if space is limited, they’re happy to climb a trellis. Seeds will germinate in 4-10 days. Thin to 3-4 plants per hill. Can also be started indoors 2-3 weeks before last frost. When ripe, their smooth, blue-green skin turns yellow, and the melons slip easily from their stems. If those signs of readiness are not enough, just the aroma of a ripe Charentais in the patch is a dead giveaway. The flavor is perfumed and tropically exotic, distinct from the more typical netted-skinned varieties.
