The Seedless watermelon has the same trademark two-toned variegated green skin and juicy, aromatic sweet flesh as the seeded version. Though it lacks the large hard black seeds of traditional watermelons, the Seedless watermelon can contain small white seeds that are soft and completely edible. Seedless watermelons can be oblong or spherical and range in size from 6 to 25 pounds. They have a densely compacted magenta flesh that is crisp yet succuent. Look for watermelons with nice even color except for a yellow patch (not white or green) where it laid on the ground.
Seedless watermelons are available year-round with a peak season in the summer months.
A member of the Cucurbitaceae family, Seedless watermelon is botanically known as Citrullus lanatus and is a triploid fruit. They are infertile, resulting from a cross between two plants of incompatible chromosome complements. Though the fruits are seedless, they must be grown from seed. Fruit development is furthered by pollination from a third party fertile watermelon. A rather complicated and costly process finally bears a fruit with no seeds. Seedless watermelons range in flesh color from red to yellow to orange.
