Golden Beauty Casaba melons were developed in the 1920s and soon gained the reputation of being the greatest of Casabas. Melon seeds, in general, have been grown in the US since 1850. Horticultural expert U. P. Hendrick, in his book Cucurbits of New York, states that casaba melons probably come from Asia Minor near Kassabeh, in Turkey. This heirloom melon, also known as the "Casaba Fruit," has a rind that matures gold. Golden Beauty Casaba is very heat tolerant. 100 days.
