Watermelon, Early Moonbeam (Organic)

Citrullus lanatus. 75 days.

Delicious, sweet, yellow-fleshed watermelon. 3-8 lb fruit have attractive, light-green skin with dark-green tiger stripes, which makes them easy to tell apart from the red watermelons. An early maturing variety that is cool weather tolerant, always ripens in our short growing season, and is always sweet – may be the sweetest watermelon we offer. This excellence is probably because Early Moonbeam was bred by Dr. Alan Kapuler of Peace Seeds here in Oregon. Dehybridized from Yellow Doll F1, a favorite of organic farmers in the Pacific Northwest. Highly recommended for farms and gardens everywhere, we can’t say enough.

Geographical Origin

,

Sow indoors in 2-4” pots with good potting soil in May through mid-June. Transplant into the garden 1-2 weeks after sprouting to 2-3’ centers and 6’ wide rows. May also be direct sown when soil is warm. Young plants are sensitive, we recommend row cover to protect from insects and frost.

Seed Saving

To save seed, scoop (or spit) out seeds when you eat the fruit. Rinse off and dry. For seed purity, isolate from other Citrullus lanatus by at least ½ mile.
