Anyone ever had "Moon and Stars" watermelons? Them's good eatin!
They get their name because the rind is so dark green that it can look almost black, but it has yellow spots -- most are small ("stars") and one or two are quite large ("moon").
When I was a kid, an old farmer who lived nearby grew them. They were, in my opinion, far better than any other variety of watermelon I've tried. But they don't ship well, so nobody grows them commercially, and only a few people who've passed down the seeds from generation to generation still grow them at all. Like a lot of "old-timey" fruit and vegetable varieties, they're much
better than most commercially-available varieties, but also much harder to find, as fewer and fewer people grow them.
Someday, I fully intend to beg, borrow, or steal some seeds from some old 3rd-generation farmer and start my own "moon and stars" patch.
