Petit Gris de Rennes Melon

Cucumis melo               80 – 85 days

I consider this French Heirloom to be one of the best tasting melons I have ever eaten. First noted in the garden of the Bishop of Rennes nearly 400 years ago. Petit Gris translates as “little petit gris de renne 1000 by 750grey”. Named for it’s appearance before ripening.  The 2-3 lb melons have a mustard and olive speckled rind when mature. Flavorful, sweet orange flesh is reminiscent of brown sugar.

Plant in the spring after all danger of frost has passed. Sow seeds 1″ deep in hills, 4′-6′ apart.. I usually plant six seeds to a hill and thin to three plants. You can also start melons indoors 3 weeks before planting in your garden.
