The first ever hybrid, triploid seedless to ever win a coveted All-America Selection award! It is the new twist on the beloved heirloom, Moon and Stars, sporting the familiar dark green rind with freckles and splotches of bright yellow. However, Harvest Moon offers many advantages: Seedless, ripens earlier, has higher yield and tastes better! 13-15”L beautiful elongated-round, 18-20 lb sweet, crisp pinkish-red fleshy fruits are set on more compact, shorter vines (3-5’ x 12’H) which yield 4-5 melons to a plant.
Pollinator required. Recommendation: Since seedless melons can be a bit more finicky to germinate than seeded melons, start indoors at 85-90 degrees F. Transplant outdoors in warm soil after seedlings develop 2 sets of true leaves. For watermelon connoisseurs who prefer heirloom varieties, we offer the Moon and Stars also! Why not try both and you be the judge…and let us know what you think!
Created from a controlled method of pollination in which the pollen of two different species or varieties is crossed by human intervention. Typical F1 varieties are deliberately created to breed a desired trait. Gardeners who use hybrid plant varieties usually purchase new seed every year, however, over several years the seed could eventually be used for open pollination
