Noir des Carmes Melon
Cucumis melo 'Noir des Carmes'
Duration: Annual
When to Sow: Spring Ease of Germination: Easy
This melon has a long history! The Carmelite monks in France grew it from at least the early 1500s. Later the renowned French seedsmen, Vilmorin-Andrieux et Cie, acquired it and sold it under the name Noir des Carmes. In 1898 Peter Henderson & Co. of New York introduced it to Americans under the name The Carmes. Today, this variety is experiencing a resurgence for the same reasons it was so popular over the many centuries: it is a delicious sweet melon with ample orange-red flesh and an addictive spicy, fruity wine-like taste. And it is very productive and easy to grow. But take note: as melons ripen and the green-black skin turns to orange don’t wait to enjoy them because they are not long keepers. 75 days.
