These French delicacies bear pale yellow, smooth skin, with distinctive green stripes and a richly aromatic perfume. They have a generous layer of salmon-orange flesh, a silky-but-firm texture, and rich, sweet full-bodied cantaloupe-type flavor. Alvaro takes the mystery out of growing Charentais type melons. They are early to mature, and easy to harvest before splitting.
This Indian HEIRLOOM, thought to have originated from the Punjab region, is simply stunning!

Exquisitely sweet, with hints of pineapple, Sharlyn is a fabulous early melon for our shorter New England growing season. Netted, oblong fruits are 4-8 pounds, with an aromatic, white flesh that melts in your mouth. Upon ripening, the netted rind will turn from green to golden orange to signal their readiness to slip from the vine and harvest.
