We had the Moon and Stars watermelon. It was only about 9" in diameter, but very sweet and yummy.
I was SO afraid I didn't pick it at the right time, but DH and I both agreed that it "sounded" right when I thumped it before serving. I barely touched it with the knife and the thing split open with a crack.
I feel like I'm telling the Japanese folk tale "Momotaro -- Peach Boy" -- there's actually a less well-known story called "Urihime -- Melon Princess"
-- in any case, no baby popped out of this fruit
I had 1 1/8 piece, then walked away. When I came back, the rest had already nearly disappeared and the DD's were stuffing their mouths!
They said DH DID have 1 small piece, which probably means 1/16 of the melon.
I still have 3 Early Sunbeam watermelons out there -- that I'd planted late as an experiment to follow the Irish potato harvest. I've covered them with row tunnels so they get some extra protection and warmth. Hopefully, they'll have time to fully ripen.
I also served some Edamame for the kids, and then the green shelled California #5 Black-eyed peas/beans. DD8 kept asking for more -- "These are SOOO good!"
There are no better words of encouragement.
