Van Doren Strain. The early-ripening strain of this legendary heirloom variety was rediscovered by Seed Savers Exchange, thanks to seed obtained from Merle Van Doren near Macon, Missouri. The medium to large 25 to 40 pound melons have dark green skin speckled with pea-size bright yellow 'stars' and usually one larger 'moon'. Leaves are also speckled. The bright rose-pink flesh is very sweet with excellent flavor. Seeds are brown. Plants have good drought and disease resistance.

    These watermelons are very similar to some that my great grandfather grew 40 years ago. unfortunately the seed was lost somewhere down the line. I consistently have melons over 30 pounds with this variety and have picked up to 5 melons per plant.
