Kasugai Japanese Muskmelon Candies
Muskmelons originated in Persia hundreds of years ago. They slowly spread through the Middle East and Europe and eventually found their way to North America.
Although both the American and European varieties of cantaloupe are muskmelons, the opposite is not always true. There are types of muskmelons that are not cantaloupes, such as the Bender, Casaba and Honey Dew.
