My Favorite Cantaloupe

Matt Harvesting Melons

We have really enjoyed growing melons this season. When we farmed in Seattle Washington we tried growing melons but they never ripened. Here in South Dakota we have been able to grow several varieties of Watermelon, Honeydew and Cantaloupe. My favorite cantaloupe this year is a French Heirloom called Charentais. It is a smaller variety that is very sweet and delicious. My favorite honeydew is Jenny Lind and for watermelon the Moon and Stars wins the prize! It is not only the tastiest but the prettiest with a moon and stars on every melon.
