"[Early 1900s GA family heirloom. Introduced 1987 by SESE. Years ago, a melon of this description was routinely shipped from Bermuda to some Southern states around Christmas time.] Good flavor, the sweetest Moon and Stars variety. 15-35 lb fruits. Has some tolerance to disease and drought. Rind has many small yellow stars and some moons. To serve, try halving melons and scooping out the insides using a melon ball scoop. Scallop the edges and fill with melon balls of red and yellow watermelon, muskmelon, and assorted fruit."
