Heirloom/Unusual Watermelons in Central NJ

Over the years I have occasionally stumbled upon some pretty fascinating specialty watermelons at different small roadside fruit stands. Does anyone know of a place/places in Central NJ that consistently carry a variety of heirloom watermelons? I think my favorite was a small watermelon, maybe as big as a very large cantaloupe or honeydew, that had a dark green rind and bright yellow flesh. It was one of the sweetest I have ever tasted. I am really looking for something like that or the variety Orangeglo I have read about. FYI, I am in Monmouth County. Any info would be greatly appreciated. I am looking for some 'off the beaten path' items to put together a Mother's Day menu for my wife and mother.
