Fruits of our labors...
We finally ate the Delice de la Table melon. It turned totally orange after being in the house for a couple of days and it smelled heavenly. The whole house smelled of it.
The taste was good, but not too sweet like I was expecting. I'm thinking if I had let it sit a few more days it would have sweetened even further. It was a good cantalope, though, and it weighed 7.2.2 pounds, so it took us several days to finish.
I saved seeds, and there are about three more out in the garden still, so I call this one a big WIN!
