Please don't tell Girl 1. Her cantaloupe are great, really. But they don't even compare to this. In fact, no cantaloupe I've ever tasted can compare to this.
I hadn't planned on planting any cantaloupe in my portion of the garden this year, but then Baker Creek sent me this free gift. How could I not try them? Their description: "This wonderful variety has become very rare. The fruit have netted skin and light green flesh that is firm, sweet and highly perfumed. Productive plants can be trained up a trellis."
I'd never even tasted a green-fleshed cantaloupe. Apparently, Thomas Jefferson grew this very heirloom variety in his 1794 garden!
It's French name means "green fleshed pineapple." If you order from Baker Creek (and you should), make a note of this variety for next year. You won't be sorry!
