Splashed with Small Yellow Stars

Watermelon - Moon & Stars - Citrullus lanatus

Tender Annual Heirloom. This unique watermelon's round, dark-green fruit is splashed with small yellow "stars" and usually one, larger yellow "moon.". Luscious, light-red, juicy flesh. The fruit is 8"-12" in diameter and weighs 10-15 pounds. This famous heirloom matures quickly, but only holds for a short time.

Did You Know? Watermelon is low in calories and is very nutritious. It is high in lycopene, second only to tomatoes!

Soil & Water: Watermelon prefers light, loamy, fertile, deep well-draining soil with a pH of 5.5-6.5. Add plenty of added organic matter. Water plants amply until setting out, then water more sparingly. Mulch to prevent weed competition.

Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 2-3 weeks before the last frost or sow seeds directly after frost. Set out 3-4 transplants per hill, selecting the strongest two when vines are 1'-2' long. Watermelons are large vining plants that can take over an extensive garden space. They can be trellised, but use slings to support the developing fruit.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest melons when the tendril closest to the stem turns dry and brown and the stem becomes brittle. Eat fresh, freeze flesh in a honey-based syrup, or pickle the rind.
