Melon - Golden Beauty Casaba

$2.75

Cucumis melo

HEIRLOOM -Considered one of the finest quality Casabas, this sweet white-fleshed fruit has a tough golden rind. An excellent keeper that can be stored well into the winter. Direct seed or transplant after danger of frost has passed. For the best melons, there is a short window of time between the transcendent flavor of perfectly ripe and perfectly rotten. To catch a melon at its peak, check the patch every other day when it's getting close, looking for tell-tale signs of cracking around the stem and full aromas. Those fruits must absolutely be harvested and eaten on the same day. For a more failsafe harvest indicator, fruit is ready when it slips easily from the vine. Beware! Deer loooove perfectly ripe melons too, so guard your patch well! Nutrients: vitamins A and C, (very high in both), K, B6, niacin, folate, potassium, magnesium, manganese and copper. (1 Gram Packet)  Approx. 25 seeds per packet.
