Cantaloupe, El Gordo hybrid

The biggest cantaloupe we have ever seen! Sweeter-than-sweet too.
75-85 days. Can't believe this cantaloupe! ‘El Gordo’ is the biggest cantaloupe in the garden. The colossal, sweeter-than-sweet fruits weigh in at 15 lbs. One melon will feed the whole family—and a friend or two or three. And how sweet it is, with a brix rating of 10-12 brix. Small cavity means more sweet, delicious flesh and fewer seeds. Full-vining plants.
