95 days. Legendary heirloom variety rediscovered in Macon, Missouri. Can grow to 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 pkt. Unique variety!

Review:

These melons are amazing! Delicious, good medium sized, hearty and easy to grow! First melons I’ve ever grown. We have that nasty thick clay soil, I simply tilled an area, mixed in some top soil and lime, added the sprouts as I start my seeds inside and move them to a mini greenhouse. They flourished, I planted 5 of them and they have sprawled in a very manageable manner:) The fruit is sweet and extremely delicious, especially cold:) Lots of seeds, lol just keep a plate handy for spitting:)

Review:

Last year I grew this variety for the first time. My husband thought it was diseased at first due to all the yellow spots on the fruit and leaves. But it's just how it should be. The fruit was sweet and a beautiful red. We had no problem growing it. When it came time to cut and eat, no one was disappointed! I'd grow it again.

What are the pros? Sweet and tasty!

What are the cons? Gophers like them too much.

Review:

So I had a couple of these planted in my garden this year, and the vines were beautiful & the fruit was amazing! Alas, after harvesting only one mature melon, the gophers got to the rest of my Moon & Stars melon plants and killed their root systems. The one fruit we did get was super sweet, a little seedy (but that's ok). My only disappointment was that the gophers killed my plants before the rest of the fruits were able to mature (I planted 2 vines, each of which had 3-4 melons starting to develop when the gophers moved in). They were in my only garden bed that isn't lined with hardware cloth. You can rest assured I will be growing these delicious, juicy, super-sweet melons again in the future! I'm just going to plant them in a different bed (kicking my toe in the dirt, head down, mumbling curse words at the gophers as I walk away....).
