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:

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....).

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
