Charentais is one of the easier varieties to grow and perfect for the novice gardener producing very early fruits weighing approximately 1kg. It has a fragrant, thick, extremely sweet and juicy, deep orange flesh. Best grown in the greenhouse in the UK but also particularly suitable for cloche culture.
Sow seed on edge to prevent rotting. Sow two seeds 1.5cm (½in) deep from mid- to late April, in small pots a propagator or on a sunny windowsill at 18-21ºC (64-70ºF). Remove the weakest seedling after germination. When at the 2 leaf stage, transplant seedlings on into at least 10cm (4 inch) pots for a few weeks before potting on into larger containers or direct into the greenhouse border, or use 2 plants per growbag.
