Melon Seeds - Bidwell Casaba - Organic
Bidwell was also known for his wheat production and gold medal winning flour which he ground at his on site mill. He is credited for California's first commercial raisin crop. If it were not for seed savers Zea Sonnabend, Clara and Lowell Stringfellow (now in their 80s), Bidwell Casaba would not have survived to the present day.
Bidwell Casaba produces a huge football shaped melon late in the season when it is hot. The flesh is creamy, sugary and compared to orange sherbet by many. Fruits can reach 15#s, are deep grooved and have yellow skin. Very aromatic.
