Golden Beauty Casaba is an heirloom variety that produces deliciously sweet fruits. The rind is golden yellow and pretty thick and tough. It's inner flesh is a soft, creamy white color. Golden Beauty Casaba will do exceptionally well in dry conditions, bearing plenty of fruit per vine so it is advised to plant it inside a polytunnel. The plants trail the earth in a vining habit, maturing to a length of roughly 10 feet long and growing to a height of about 2 feet tall.
