Probably the most beautiful — and unusual — watermelon ever grown, this heirloom is also one of the sweetest! Most of the fruit is 25 to 30 pounds, but the occasional over-achiever balloons up to 50, protecting the succulent juiciness of its bright red flesh with a deeply-ridged, very thick rind!
The rind is the most interesting aspect of Moon and Stars — though not the most delicious, of course! It is very dark green, liberally spotted with bright yellow and boasting the occasional larger, moon-shaped blotch of the same color. The foliage bears the same markings! No two melons are just alike, making this crop a delight with each new fruit.
Heirloom lovers and watermelon addicts alike will love Moon and Stars. It is ultra-sweet, succulent, and delectable, with a rind as attractive as the flesh is delicious!
Sow directly into the sunny garden when the soil is warm and all danger of frost is past. Sow the seeds in raised hills or rows 3 inches high. Thin to 3 plants per hill 3 feet apart, or 1 plant per foot in rows. For earlier fruit, seeds may be started indoors. Pkt is 25 seeds.
