Canteloupe Melon ‘Charentais’

£1.50

It is a very old variety and is actually one of the easier varieties to grow and perfect for the novice gardener. Mid-sized fruits are grey-green in colour, sometimes stripy, sometimes not quite so pronounced. Inside the flesh is a rich orange colour and literally so juicy you may struggle to not dribble when eating! Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects. Plant two to a growbag or one to a large pot. Fruits are ripe when they become ever so slightly yellow , the flesh around the stem becomes slightly soft and they smell strongly of melons.

Price per plant in 9cm pot
