Are seeded watermelons sweeter than seedless ones? It’s unclear, though one thing is true: Seeded watermelons are increasingly hard to find.
Luckily, Kayde has jumped in with a tip on an heirloom variety and its grower that should be on your watermelon watch list: Crimson Sweet from Full Belly Farm. The flavor is fantastic. Peak season is July and August—buy them at the Tuesday Berkeley Farmers’ Market.
