Watermelon - Moon & Stars Seeds   

Moon & Stars’ is an heirloom variety introduced in 1926, USA, with very sweet, rich, red flesh. The rind is patterned with yellow markings and the foliage can be speckled yellow as well. Fruit can grow very large, between 13 and 20 kg.’ ‘Moon & Stars’ requires considerable heat and sun.The flesh around the seeds tends to get mealy just when the melon is at its peak, which is the only downside I’ve found — although those who like their fruit seedless may balk at the large seeds that surround a small heart. On the other hand, those who eat the nutritious seeds (Amy Goldman notes that watermelons are grown for their seeds rather than the flesh in China and many parts of Africa) will prize ‘Moon & Stars’
