Where to get good old-fashioned WATERMELON?

gtimber | Jul 27, 2011 08:38 PM

Watermelon is probably my favorite fruit, but when I think about it, I picture the large, long, light green melons of my youth (east coast, 1970's) that were really red on the inside, really sweet, and had large dark brown seeds that, after some practice, were really easy to clear out. But these kids nowadays, with their smaller, roundish, dark green striped basketballs, they go around yelling "Seedless! Seedless!" when they should be yelling "Flavorless! Flavorless!" *sigh*

Anyway, it seems the average produce shopper is resigned to this one variety that dominates all groceries and FMs. Anyone know where to get the old seeded kind, or any other variety that is not factory-farmed for its alleged seedlessness?
