Casaba Melon The casaba melon is a type of muskmelon, closely related to honeydew and cantaloupe. It was first cultivated in Persia thousands of years ago. It wasn't introduced to the United States until the late nineteenth century when it was imported from Kasaba, Turkey. Casaba melons are golden yellow with greenish coloration on their wrinkled exterior. The round, pumpkin shaped melon has a slight point at the stem end. The flesh is creamy-green, juicy and lightly sweet. Delicious eaten by as is, or for added flavor, try it with a sprinkle of ginger, salt, or a squeeze of lemon or lime juice. Casaba melons add sweetness to fruit salads and are refreshing used in drinks, like fruit punch, margaritas or daiquiris.
Boule D' Or Melon - FRESH seeds
19th-century, French heirloom market melon that is prolific, hardy, and mildew resistant. It is a honeydew melon variety which, when ripe, has a deep lemon-colored, loosely netted skin with a pale green, honey-sweet flesh that emits tropical and slightly perfumed aromatics. Can grow to an average of 7 to 10 inches in diameter.
The Boule D'or was first listed in 1885 in Vilmorin's book "The Vegetable Garden" (the first-ever seed catalog published for farmers and growers) but as with many heirloom varieties, finding its seeds today is a rarity. Fruits will keep for several weeks if kept cool and dry. Very hard to find.
