What are the pros? Productive, interesting, good
What are the cons? Little seedy
These seeds were direct sown into my zone 4 garden. I have dry sandy soil, so i made hills out of about half a bag of bagged manure and planted them into that. Not expecting great germination or success, I planted about 8-10 seeds per hill, and 3 hills.... and I forgot to thin the seedlings! I have watermelons coming out of my ears. I prefer this to the strawberry watermelon that I planted, because Early Moonbeam has a nice rind that I find did not split open. Several of the other varieties would randomly split. There are a lot of black seeds, which those that are spoiled with seedless watermelon might not enjoy. I just eat the seeds, a little fiber never hurts :). Vibrant, juicy, tasty, the largest fruit are volleyball sized and many more personal sized melons. Seem to keep good on the table, and seem to not go mealy and over ripe as fast as other varieties. Will grow this one again next year and compare it to another!
