Grow this wonderful Tuscan cantaloupe in a poly-tunnel or under a cloche and be rewarded by 1.7kg (60 oz), heavily netted, sweetly fleshed fruits. The extra heat provided by a cloche will make the plants far more productive, but they will produce in a regular raised garden bed as well. The even, dark green sutures on Tirreno melons develop a yellow tinge at peak ripeness, telling you exactly when to harvest. Tirreno Organic cantaloupe seeds are sold by seed count. The flesh is very rich orange with a crisp texture and excellent sweet flavour with a brix rating of 13-15%.
Matures in 80 days. (Hybrid seeds)
