Charentais Melon is a French Melon that you will not find in the grocery store. It does not travel well and you may find it in the farmer's market. Otherwise you will have to grow your own. Growing cucumbers and melons in my garden is a challenge because of beetles and they carry wilt diseases that destroy these plants. We love Charentais Melon and so I decided to try to grow this year. Here is an example of what we have so far. The melons are now the size of a baseball.
