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? 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.

Review:

We grew this great melon in SE Iowa during the second year of a drought. We achieved 100% germination, planting in 6 hills, 5 seeds per hill. Thinned the plants early to 3 per hill. Speckled foliage was really cool. Didn't realize it did that. Vines were strong, and spread well over garden. Eventually crept out into yard. Harvested around 18 melons, from 5 to 35 lbs. I was hoping for some big ol moon on a few of them, but all I got was some small moons and lots of stars. lol. Flavor is excellent, texture is perfect and yes, there are lots of seeds. We love that, but it is the first thing a lot of people say that try it. Just cleaned up the last of the vines today. Great variety, would highly recommend and will be growing again.
