Dense, 2-lb fruit has orange flesh that is superbly sweet, flavorful and perfumed. This variety is early and well adapted to cool climates. This fine French variety is of the best quality and is the favorite melon of the French melon expert and author Bruno Defay. Rare in the USA. One of the most requested market melons; specialty growers love them because they command top prices! Photo courtesy of Baker Creek Heirloom Seed.
