Petit Gris de Rennes Melon
In our garden trials, this cantaloupe stood up to disease pressure better than most hybrid melons we grew. An open-pollinated, French heirloom, Petit Gris de Rennes produces 2 lb. fruits with small kernel cavities, powerful fragrance and sweet, richly flavored flesh that have hints of caramel. Its flavor is unlike any modern hybrid melon that we've tried. The fruits are as attractive as they are delicious. They have dark gray-green skins and deep orange flesh.
