The Moon and Stars Watermelon stands out in the garden with its dark green rind speckled with tiny yellow “stars” and an occasional large yellow patch, or “moon.” Although the seed-house of Peter Henderson and Co. of New Jersey released Moon and Stars in 1926, its rediscovery in 1981 on a farm near Macon, Missouri was a victory for heirloom seed savers, who had spent nearly a decade in search of this curious and delicious melon, now a signature variety for the movement to preserve heritage plants.

Sow the seed ½” deepin fertile hills 8’ apart in the late spring after the last frost; sow 6-8 seeds per hill and thin to 3-4 plants. Alternatively, start plants indoors 4 weeks before last frost. The vigorous vines produce an abundance of tasty melons, large and small.

Approximately 10-12 seeds per packet.
