  • Consistently a best-quality variety
  • Holds its color after harvest

A great all-around cantaloupe for home gardeners, Athena Hybrid Cantaloupe consistently produces coarsely netted, 5-6 lb. fruits with outstanding flavor and an enticing aroma. The firm, salmon-colored flesh holds up well after harvest, too. In our melon trials, Athena delivered the highest-quality cantaloupes in the 5-6 lb. fruit range. Its vigorous vines exhibited good disease resistance and produced high yields. This cantaloupe is a top performer in many parts of the United States. With its flavor and performance, it's easy to see why Athena Hybrid Cantaloupe is a consistent favorite among home gardeners. 75 DAYS.
