348MOON AND STARS, CHEROKEECert. BD/OGHEIRLOOM One of the legendary Moon and Stars varieties of watermelon which were once thought to be lost. Dark skinned watermelons with golden yellow stars and one larger yellow "moon". This variety has red flesh that is consistently sweet and flavorful. We have a fairly challenging climate for watermelons, but these come through well for us in warmer and cooler years with delicious 10-20lb. fruits. This variety has been consistently among our first to ripen. The leaves and vigorous vines are also speckled with stars.
