About Charentais melons

The Charentais melon is a small French cantaloupe that originated in the Charentes region of France. These melons have a rounded shape and a smooth green and gray rind with dark green ribbing. Inside, there is dense, orange flesh with a flowery aroma that has hints of tropical fruit, which surrounds a central seed cavity. Charentais melons are popular in Europe, especially in France, where they are highly celebrated for their scent and taste. The flesh of these melons is slightly firmer than a cantaloupe, and they have a sweeter flavor.

Charentais melons are an excellent source of folic acid, beta-carotene, and vitamin C. They are also high in dietary fiber along with potassium and vitamin B. These melons provide high amounts of water and have the provitamin A. This antioxidant is an important nutrient that helps protect cells from damage due to free radicals.

FAQs About Charentais Melons

Charentais melon should ideally be eaten within a day or two of purchase. These melons ripen quickly, so the faster you cut it and eat it, the better. Make sure to keep them on the kitchen counter and not in the refrigerator before cutting. Once you've cut it, it can then go in the fridge if you don't eat the whole thing.

You can pair this sweet melon with a variety of cheeses, such as salty feta and goat cheese. It is also delicious with several types of nuts such as hazelnuts and almonds.
