David's pick for cantaloupe is Sarah's Choice and Sugar Cube. He picks these because they are 2 to 3 pounds which means they will mature earlier than usual.
Sarah's Choice Cantaloupe 1000 Hybrid Seeds
Our most flavorful cantaloupe, Sarah's Choice, with its sweet and juicy flesh, has consistently been the most flavorful cantaloupe year after year. Its flavor, combined with its attractive oval fruits and ideal 3 pound size, make it the best variety for home gardeners. Ready to harvest in 76 days.
Sugar Cube Cantaloupe 1000 Hybrid Seeds
Sugar Cube lives up to its name with intensely sweet flavor. Boasts a strong disease package. Yields very uniform, heavily-netted 2-4 pounds. fruits with deep-orange, aromatic flesh. Fruits are just a bit bigger than a softball.
Sugar Cube is well-suited for Northern and Southern growers. High resistance to Fusarium wilt races 0-2, powdery mildew, and watermelon mosaic virus; intermediate resistance to papaya ringspot virus and zucchini yellow mosaic virus.
Harvest in 90 days.
We recommend the Savor and Torpedo because of their small size.
Melon Savor 1000 Hybrid Seeds
The sweetest French melon. Unsurpassed eating quality. The small, 2 pound melons are of the classic Charentais type: faintly ribbed, with a smooth gray-green rind and dark-green sutures.
Sweet and aromatic, deep-orange flesh. High resistance to fusarium wilt races 0 to 2; and intermediate resistance to powdery mildew.

Melon Torpedo 1000 Hybrid Seeds

grower. High-yielding plants produces an average of 1.2 pounds, 5 by 3
and 1/2 inch cylindrical fruits that are lemon yellow with white
sutures. Refreshingly crisp and moderately sweet white flesh. Performs
very well in cool, northern areas. Fruits slip off vine when ripe.
