Watermelon, Moon And Stars Heirloom is rated out of 5 by 9.Rated 1 out of 5 by LeoJen 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.Date published: 2015-08-10Rated 5 out of 5 by Warbird from Spot On I have grown this watermelon for years and it has deep red flesh and a very strong sweet flavor.Highly recommended!!Date published: 2013-03-10Rated 5 out of 5 by bjdelo 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.Date published: 2013-03-02Rated 5 out of 5 by EPollnac 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!Date published: 2012-09-06Rated 3 out of 5 by gardenerwannabe 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.Date published: 2012-05-09Rated 1 out of 5 by indigosand 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!Date published: 2011-08-27Rated 4 out of 5 by Greene 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.Date published: 2011-07-24Rated 5 out of 5 by Whammo 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!Date published: 2010-01-27
