  • Watermelon, Moon And Stars Heirloom is rated 3.7778 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from First try for these. Indoor sown, every precious seed germinated. The seedlings all got a few leaves on them, they looked good. Then they died, like overnight. I was so sad. But I will keep trying until I succeed, because they look delicious.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good producer, great taste One of the better watermelons I've grown. Dark flesh has a great taste and plants consistently produced 3-4 fruits per plant for me. Will continue to grow this watermelon for the foreseeable future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome flavor The 'Moon & Stars' melon is bout the best tasting I've ever had. I started them indoor in early may, by mid to late August I was pickin melons. The largest this year was a solid 33 pounder. My kids just love them!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hopeful Heirloom Melon I planted the seeds as directed but only a small portion of the seeds have sprouted. Hopefully the others are late.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Must've been a new moon Because mine never sprouted. Not a single seed from my scant packet of these came up. :( What a shame!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Watermelon I have grown Moon & Stars for 3 years now and I will continue to grow it. The melons grow large even without a steady supply of water. I have had several well over 30lbs and where I live we usually don't get a lot of rain so these plants do very well during dry spells. Flavor is good but not overly sweet. It is very crisp and very cool looking. Puts on just as many melons as any other plant that I grow.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome melons! These melons love our southern climate, and our sandy soil. The 25 lbs that Burpee lists is small/conservative compared to what I have pulled out of my garden. I have pulled out 45+ pound melons on regular occasion! Very sweet and delicous, and very low maintenance in our Oklahoma climate. I have tried many different vaieties of melons, and this has been by far the best producer. May not like a northern climate, but not sure. They seem to really like heat. This is a winner, for sure!
