Watermelon Controversy! - Seeded vs. Seedless?

StriperGuy | Jul 5, 200206:38 AM     37

At our July 4th cookout were were discussing the merits of seeded vs. seedless watermelon.

My feeling is that old fashioned watermelon, with seeds, is sweeter, juicier, and has a better texture.

The new seedless varietes always seem to have a pulpy texture and are never really juicy. Also, the seedless varieties always seem to have something missing in terms of taste. They also have a paler, slightly whitish color not the deep red of the seeded varieties.

I have no great desire to spit out seeds, (thought it can be fun) but I am definitely not ready to give up on good old fashioned watermelon.

Any other Chowhounds want to weigh in on this one?
