Moon and Stars Watermelon.

The Moon and Stars variety of watermelon is named for its appearance.
The medium-sized oval dark green fruits are covered with pea-sized bright yellow "stars" and usually one larger "moon." The fruits have sweet pink flesh and brown seeds. Foliage is also spotted.

Looks purple to me. Too bad the seeds are sold out! http://www.seedsavers.org/prodinfo.asp?number=266 -via J-Walk Blog

This is a lovely melon...delish!!!
You may also get seeds at rareseeds.com or at seedsofchange.com, both companies dedicated to the promotion of the survival of heirloom varieties. Also lots of other wonderful varieties at both.

They're actually pretty common at local fruit stands. I've grown them before and they really are green, not purple. The fruit is way sweeter than the "regular" variety of watermellons you get at the store.
