Marina Danilenko of Moscow, Russia helped Seed Savers Exchange obtain the seed of this Ukrainian heirloom melon. The original source of the seed was a woman from a collective farm. It was introduced to American gardeners in 1993.

Melons were developed and domesticated in Africa and Asia. Europeans settling in the Americas are recorded growing honeydew and casaba melons in the 17th century.
