This is a musk melon nice producer. Yellow rind with flesh similar to a honey dew grows kinda quick. You definitely want to treat this one as a main season crop cause as with most melons they are not cold tolerant at all. The casba will do great in shorter growing season areas for a large melon it matures faster than other melons its size at harvest. It should be firm and almost all green gone from the rind. Happy growing!!!!!!!!
