95 days. Legendary Heirloom Variety rediscovered in Macon, Missouri. Can grow over 40 lbs. The dark green rind has bright yellow spots on it! Spots range in size from tiny to several inches across. Leaves are also specked in yellow. It has very sweet brilliant, red flesh. This is becoming one of the most popular Heirloom varieties, a winner! Originally introduced by Peter Henderson & Co. in 1926, it was called "SUN, MOON AND STARS." The catalog says "...an extraordinary variation...and that it has such a delicious taste". It was sold then for 20 cents a packet. Unique variety!

What are the pros? Taste, ease of growing

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

Growing these and Crimson Sweets this year. I harvested my first melon yesterday, a Moon and Stars that was 35 lbs! It is sweet and crisp like the melons I remember from my childhood. These seem to be easier to tell when they're ripe (when the spoon leaf and the stem tendril are dried and brown) than some I've grown in the past. I will be growing these every year from now on.

What are the pros? Unique

What are the cons? Doesn't ripen

Review:

I was so disappointed in this melon! While the looked excellent on the vine, and they were a conversation starter, I never got one melon that ripened! I had other melons planted that ripened well...so it wasn't because of the growing season or the soil. I won't grow these again.

What are the pros? Very good watermelon

What are the cons? none

Review:

2016 This year I grew 9 types of watermelon, all were sweet to very sweet melons. I wanted to see which kind was the best tasting watermelon, I would give friends 3 types of watermelon (one at a time) and had them rate the melons, Moon and stars was the winner, All Sweet came in second and Jubilee third, I was looking for color of the flesh, sweetness and taste

What are the pros? Love the taste.

What are the cons? none

Review:

I have been growing these for the past 5 years from the original seeds I bought back then. I also have been sharing my seeds and Melons with other gardeners. I water most every day and have every year had some 35-40 pounders. Living in Connecticut it is surprising to many that watermelons will thrive here but all it takes is full sun, water, water and water.

Review:

First time grower of this heirloom watermelon. Size doesn't matter although flavor does. Very sweet with a vanilla accent. When harvested some stated the melons weren't ripe. Most in South Eastern Ohio along the Ohio River are used to more generic varieties.
