Watermelon Seedless, Big Tasty Hybrid

Short Description

Handy-sized, but big-flavored, seedless watermelon!

Full Description

Divinely sweet, perfectly textured jewel red flesh, won our summer tasting of over 50 varieties. At 10-12" in diameter and 6-8 lb., this seedless watermelon is the classic "icebox" size, like a smaller but seedless Charleston Gray. Fruit has gray-green outer skin and a firm, crisp, bright red interior. Keeps its superb taste and ripe texture an extra-long time after cutting.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT Seedless! Burpee, if you're going to advertise a product as "seedless" then it should be seedless. There were tons of seeds in these watermelons, absolutely ridiculous.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from watermelons I ordered watermelon seedless, big tasty hybrid, these were not seedless watermelons as I wanted, full of seeds and not round like seedless watermelons I have bought at the supermarket. My mother ordered these a few weeks before I did, and needless to say, they were not seed seedless either, ended up throwing the melons away after the first one was picked, since they were for the grandchildren.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sweet and tasty Melons were large and plentiful. Delicious, although each had many seeds. Still looking for seedless variety.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tastes awesome! My children wanted to try growing our own watermelons, yet wanted to have the seedless variety, so we chose the 'Big Tasty Hybrid' as our first ever attempt at growing watermelons. The growing part has been easy, the waiting part has been challenging. Once the plants started forming fruit we have been tempted to pick one. Today I picked the first watermelon and what a treat. It is a beautiful fruit, sweet but not too sweet and very juicy. I could not be more thrilled with this seedless watermelon. The only problem is. . .I wanted to wait to try it until the kids got home from school. . .it was calling my name and I had to taste it right away. Thanks Burpee!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No seedless watermelon I read that pollinator seed was mixed in with the seedless watermelon seed, but I don't know what the pollinator watermelon should look like.  So far, I've cut open 3 watermelons that look on the outside very much like the picture of the seedless watermelon and not one has been seedless.  It would be better to ship pollinator seed in a separate package so the seed could be planted in a separate hill.  I was very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from More black seeds than I've ever seen in a seeded Just cut my first watermelon and have never seen so many black seeds. Other than that, it grew nicely, but won't try these again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No seedless melon seeds came up Was very excited about the beautiful, vigorous vines these seeds produced; unfortunately, only the pollinators came up. The melons have very little flesh and loads of big seeds. Won't do this again -
