"This melon gives me the chills," says Amy Goldman. “You will blink your eyes with disbelief when you sample its sweetness, which is more like brown sugar than white. It will melt on your tongue, and your mouth will water for more.” Petit Gris de Rennes is surprisingly easy to grow, even in short seasons, producing 3 to 4 exquisite fruit per plant.

Organic Petit Gris de Rennes Cantaloupe "This melon gives me the chills," says Amy Goldman. “You will blink your eyes with disbelief when you sample its sweetness, which is more like brown sugar than white. It will melt on your tongue, and your mouth will water for more.” Petit Gris de Renne is surprisingly easy to grow, even in short seasons, producing 3 to 4 exquisite fruit per plant.

Her name translates to "little grey of Rennes," referring to her rind color before maturity and where she was first documented to have been grown in a bishop’s garden.

Alas, Petit Gris de Rennes does not travel well, so she has been forgotten by commercial seed houses. It is our pleasure to share these seeds with you then, all the more.

Grow Like a Pro: Harvesting melon is both art and science, and hardly an easy one. If the tendril on the stem opposite the fruit is brown and dry, you likely have a ripe melon. Rich melon scent is also a hint, especially on the blossom end. Split melon? Eat it right away!
