ROCKMELON 'PETIT GRIS DE RENNES'

ROCKMELON 'PETIT GRIS DE RENNES'

Cucumis melo
Member $3.95
Non-Member $4.95
A very old heirloom that was first noted in a bishops garden in Rennes France over 400 years ago. And it is still popular today because of its sublime flavour and fragrance. We found the vine to be compact and the fruit small making it the perfect melon for most suburban gardens. It also performs well in areas with cooler summers.
