Charentais melons are said to be the finest melon in both taste and texture. Because of their small size, they are the perfect "breakfast for two" melon.

These globe shaped fruits have either a smooth or a slightly netted gray-green rind with dark green, slightly furrowed sutures. They have an orange flesh and a luscious, flowery aroma.

Popular in Europe, Charentais' are especially prized in France for their rich, honeyed finish. Try wrapping slices of Charentais with proscuitto as an appetizer or cut one in half and serve with port wine poured over it for a special dessert.
