History

The early history of this unique watermelon is unknown, possibly originally from Russia. Offered in seed catalogs in the 1930’s, it was considered then a legendary variety.

Habit

These round melons are dark green, nearly black, covered with small bright yellow “stars” and usually one larger “moon.” The flesh is deep pink and very sweet.

Culture

Plant seed outdoors in late spring after ground has warmed and danger of frost is past, or start indoors 4 to 6 weeks earlier. Traditionally planted in “hills” (a small circular group of 3-5 seeds) seeds can also be planted in rows 5-8 feet apart. Cover seed with ½” of fine soil, well pressed down. Germinates in 7-10 days, depending on weather. Matures in 90 days.
