Heirloom watermelon


We finally picked our first watermelon of the season. The garden got put in the ground a little later than usual this spring, so we are now reaping some of the benefits. We grew some Moon & Stars Heirloom watermelons this year. They are so named because of the one large yellow dot on the surface with smaller dots scattered around it. We did choose the yellow variety and it is excellent. Most of the flowers/vegetables we are growing this year are of the heirloom variety.

  1. I'd love to taste the watermelon-does it taste like the regular red ones? Thanks for the heirloom seed link!
