My recent post about where seedless watermelons come from prompted me to seek out an old school, fully seeded alternative.
Happily, Madison-area farmers have satisfied my hankering with a crop of Yellow Doll watermelons. (Thank you, Tipi Produce!)
The modest size of these “ice box” melons means that our household of two has no trouble getting the whole thing eaten in a short time.
Like my mom used to do, I cut the melon into big chunks and then slice away or pick out the seeds for easy eating.
If you see them at the farmers’ market or grocery store, I encourage you to give them a try! I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
