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!

What are the cons? none to speak of

Review:

A lovely melon with great flavor, we had just moved to where we had gardened this year and the soil quality was actually very poor, This amazing plant was the first of the watermelons to germinate, put out runners, and fruit. They got the biggest of all of them, and still tasted very sweet.

What are the pros? Easy to grow. Healthy vines

What are the cons? Low production , white flesh

Review:

I just picked the first of these melons. I sold three at the market today. One if my customers called to tell me it was the best melon she had ever eaten. Sweat all the way to the edge. BUT, the flesh was solid white. It had all the signs of a ripe melon. Dried tendrils, creamy yellow field spot, dull outside color. They are growing well in healthy vines. Not a lot of melons on each vine though.

What are the pros? Hearty

What are the cons? Lots of seeds

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:)
