Tuscany Cantaloupe

100 days. An incredibly aromatic and flavorful Italian Cantaloupe, this slightly elongated, 2- to 3-pound melon has juicy, salmon-colored flesh, a small seed cavity, and a thin, finely netted and distinctly grooved rind. Interesting fact: if this Melon's grooves are still green, it's not quite at its peak yet. Either wait a few more days to harvest, or let it sit indoors at room temperature for maximum sweetness. (OP.)

  • Information
  • Nothing speaks the sultry language of summer like the juicy taste of Melons. Direct-sow the seed 4 weeks before the last spring frost date and transplant out when nighttime temperatures are reliably 55°F. Install supportive trellising structure through which to train the vines. As Melons reach maturity, stop watering to prevent splitting. Harvest when the stem disconnects readily from the vine. Fat-free and low-calorie, most Melons are high in Vitamins A and C. For wild raves and acclaim, make Shelburne Farm's Watermelon, Tomato and Feta Salad. Bee friendly. Deer resistant.

    Average seed life: 2 years.
