Family: Cucurbit (Cucurbitacea)
Annual, 70-90 days to maturity
(Moon and Stars Watermelon) Vine bearing large oblong fruits ranging in weight from 10 to 30 lbs, sometimes more. Watermelon prefers rich, sandy soil and does best in the full sun. Sow indoors 3 weeks before last frost date in gallon pots and transplant. Or, seed directly in the garden once the soil has truly warmed up. Plant 1/2 inch deep and tamp securely. Germ in one week. Thin or transplant to 3 plants per hill, and space hills at least 6 feet apart. Watermelon require plenty of room to grow! Moon and stars is an heirloom classic–large fruited, with very sweet red flesh and an outer skin that is dark green with yellow markings that resemble the moon and the stars shining out from the dark firmament. I don’t know about you, but I don’t trust a watermelon that doesn’t make seeds.
