Just as Chico boasts a Bidwell Park, Bidwell Mansion and Bidwell Perk, the city can also claim the Bidwell Casaba. Using USDA seed stock from 1869, US Senator, John Bidwell, saved and improved this heavenly melon for years in Chico, CA. The fruits are huge at 9 x 14 inch and weighing 15 lbs. This is the sweetest melon we have ever tasted!
