"The Moon and Stars watermelon is the poster child of the heirloom seed movement. Its buttery moons and constellations of stars are awe-inspiring. Unique among watermelons, both foliage and fruit are bedecked with heavenly bodies", writes melon guru Amy Goldman. But Moon and Stars almost slipped into a black hole until Kent Whealy of Seed Savers Exchange rescued this treasure from extinction. Thick skin enables storage throughout winter. Harvest from 14 weeks. Yields 3-4 fruit (25kg) per plant.
