Enjoy this lovely golden melon well into the winter, as it can be stored for months. The tough rinds mature to a golden yellow, with sweet white flesh inside. These melons measure 6" around and weigh about six pounds each. It takes about 100 days to reach maturity.
Golden Beauty Casaba melons were developed in the 1920s, and soon gained the reputation of being the greatest of casabas. Casaba melon seeds in general have been grown in the US since the 1850. Horticultural expert U. P. Hendrick, in his book Cucurbits of New York, states that casaba melons probably come from Asia Minor near the town of Kassabeh, in Turkey. This heirloom melon, also known as the "Casaba Fruit," has a rind that matures gold. Golden Beauty Casaba is an 8 lb. variety that is very heat tolerant.
