Early Moonbeam

Early Moonbeam Yellow & Orange Flesh OG

(78 days) Open-pollinated. Open-pollinated stabilized selection from Yellow Doll, one of breeder Alan Kapuler’s notable successes in de-hybridizing hybrids. Kapuler retained most of Doll’s strengths including earliness, icebox size (5–8 lb), sweet yellow flesh and colorful skin of dark green stripes on a greenish-white background, while sacrificing only a scintilla of uniformity and flavor. Brix reading of 9.9 at WSU trials. Breeder Royalties.

Culture: Harvesting watermelon at proper ripeness is an art. Thumping should produce a low, hollow sound. Spread thumb and forefinger and press hard on fruit. If you feel any give, watermelon is ripe. Don’t heed the traditional advice to wait for the closest tendril to brown—that may be too late. Minimum germination temperature 60°, optimal range 75–95°.

Diseases: ANTH: Anthracnose, F: Fusarium
