Watermelon, Moon and Stars Red
For fantastic red flesh with a “star-scape” yellow patterning on its dark green skin, Moon and Stars makes a dramatic addition to the garden. Introduced in 1926 in Missouri, these vines grow large fruits with exceptional flavor.
Watermelon: These summer treats are an awesome addition to the garden. There is nothing like their large juicy fruit to mark a summer BBQ. Watermelons grow on long vines that can spread and cover a fair amount of space, so do allow plenty of area for the vines to wander over.
Growing Tips: Watermelons like good well-drained soils. It can help to make a mound about 8 inches tall and 12 inches across to plant watermelons in and allow for extra drainage. Give plant as good 18 inches between vines.
