    I have noticed that more growers are going that direction. My experience seeded meloñs are sweeter. Watermelons must be left on the vine to ripen . If picked too soon no flavor ,

    I was thinking it's like seedless grapes, not that they are picked earlier but that they have been selected for

    Seeded melons taste better but are difficult to sell.
    The American market demands seedless.

    It's too bad watermelon unlike many other foods can be left on the vine and still last in the stores.

    I am interested in availability of good melons on mainland & other parts of the world. Various types of melons are grown in Hawaii. Usually they are better than the stuff shipped in that has no flavor. Most people don't know what a sweet melon tastes like. As a retired chef taste most important over not having seeds.

    All the joy of eating watermelon as a kid in the summer was permission to have a watermelon seed fight with your siblings!
