Noir des Carmes Melon
This melon is a true French cantaloupe named for the Carmelite monks who once tended it in France. It is one of the easiest to grow and most luxurious of all melons. The melon has rich black-green skin when immature, ripening to orange mottled with green. The fruit has a sweet, aromatic, orange flesh; the flavor is complex and deeply satisfying. These melons tend to split when ripe. This plant is very productive, and the fruit is ripe in 75 days.
