The Delice de la Table melon has a maturity date of 75 days. This is one of best of all the French melons! It has been in French culture for centuries, is Heirloom, and Non-GMO. A direct translation is: It's delicious at the table! This Heirloom is very rare in the USA but still popular in France. You will know when the melons are ripe because they look like little pumpkins with a deep orange flesh; they look like no melon you may have ever seen at a super market. The Delice da la Table is a garden treat that you must try at least once. Remember, since melons love heat to plant after all danger of frost has past. To our northern gardener friends, start one or two weeks before setting out; be careful to not disturb the roots during transplanting. Happy growing!!!
