Melon, Charentais

HEIRLOOM. The ultimate French melon—and one of the best-tasting anywhere.
The definitive French melon. Originating in the Poitou-Charentes region around 1920, Charentais is considered the best melon ever developed because of its high sugar content, smooth texture and ambrosial fragrance. Perfect for two servings, the small round melons weigh just 2 lb. Gray in color with slight ribs, the melons have rich salmon-orange flesh.
