This variety is also known as 'Extra Early Hanover' melon. It was first introduced in 1895 by T.W. Woods & Sons of Richmond, Virginia. Some say that it has attained immense popularity in that region.

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.
