Gorgeous green watermelons have yellow moons and stars, and terrific, sweet flavor…

85 days. OP. Heirloom from before 1900, thought to be lost, but found by Kent Whealy from Seed Savers exchange being grown by Merle Van Doren in Missouri. On the Slow Foods Ark of Taste, so you know it has to be more than just good! Vigorous vines produce oblong melons up to 40 lbs, but most are in the 15 to 20 lb. range. The melons have a dark green rind with a large yellow “moon” and lots of little yellow “stars.” Even the foliage is speckled. The flesh is red, juicy, and very sweet.
