A good percentage of the potential watermelon customers I have ask If my melons are seedless :?: My standard answer is "no, because I cannot buy seedless watermelon seeds." :!: :shock: Some get it, and some give me the deere in the headlight look, then they figure it out. Kinda like my jar of pickle. I have been told that seedless melons are crossed in the field. One variety used is the Crimson Sweet. I do not know how the cross pollenation is carried out.

Gosh guys I started this as a fun joking kinda thing but here is how you produce the seedless melon.

To get fruit, the seedless watermelon (called triploids) must be grown next to the regular watermelon (called diploid). The seedless watermelon is sterile and unable to pollinate by itself. Therefore, the regular watermelon assists in the pollination process for the seedless watermelon to get fruit.

Over my head but if anyone really was interested

I guess the absence of seeds also takes away their taste. I have never tasted a seedless one that was as good as a seeded one. At the local cafeteria, they serve Crimson Sweet melons, a seeded variety.

Think I have to agree Jim. I do like the flavor of the seeded ones better as well.

The reason they are so expensive is they cross 2 types and save the seed and then grow them and cross them with a third type. (also known as triploid)
If its flavor you are after try a seeded type called Yellow Doll. They are small, the earliest I know of and the sweetest. They are Yellow inside and a hard sell here.

You said it Jim, most taste like they're mixed with a cucumber to me. Crimson Sweet is a good melon.
But, anyway I'll stick with my little sweet Sugar Babys, or as my bride calls them, "green bowling ball melons".

That's a pretty good description Dave. They have a flat taste, almost as if they have been off the vine for too long. Come to think of they have due to shipping time. But the retailers and marketeers have convinced the consuming public, mostly city folks, that the inconvenience of having to spit seeds out- weighs the taste.
