(95 days) An old watermelon from the 1930's which almost disappeared. The smooth, dark green skin is spotted with yellow blotches. The fruit has a big blotch (the moon) surrounded by smaller blotches (the stars) - very picturesque! The foliage is also spotted. The flesh is pink and juicy, with lots of seeds.
Produces 10kg/25lb fruits with juicy flesh that is bright red with old fashioned sweet flavour and fine texture. Great for slicing, in fruit salads and juicing...the rind is quite thick and lends itself to being its own tureen or punch bowl for soups and summer libation. 85 days.
