This large melon defies the trend toward smaller size! Many gardeners still want a good big melon, and the 6 to 8 lb. Superstars fit the bill. The thick, smooth flesh has fine flavor and aroma that holds well for nearly a week after picking. These melons are round to flattened with prominent ribs and heavy netting. The vines are resistant to fusarium wilt (race 2) and bear early and heavily. Good-eating!
