75 days. The Athena Hybrid variety of cantaloupe is a large melon with a sweet taste. The vine produces melons that reach maturity in as soon as seventy five days; earlier than many other varieties of cantaloupe.
These seeds do best with full sun. Rich, sandy soil is preferable. Athena is an early-maturing eastern melon in a class of its own, asked for by name from gardeners to growers.
Athena has consistently delivered at the top for flesh color, flavor, aroma, firmness, and shelf life after harvest.
