The watermelons at all of the grocery stores are the size of bowling balls. What happened to the normal sized watermelons?

Cucumbers too. They're almost like zucchinis

They are seedless and being round makes them easier to ship and pack.

The smaller round melons are called 'ice box type' melons and you can ship more of them than the bigger 'rattlesnake' types

OK, but they charge as much for the ice box types as they do for the normal sized ones that I got last summer, $5-$7.

What I'd like to know is why the local VONS/Safeyway is selling the bowlingball watermelons for Fifteen fucking dollars.

The Feds are restricting the size to prevent overdoses. Be careful.

I wish they'd start growing square ones like they have in japan

Link Posted: 7/19/2008 3:39:50 PM EST
Wish we would get some with seeds up here. The seedless have no taste even the little ones.

I bought a home grown one today, about 30 lbs for $4. It goes in the cooler to be iced down in the morning.
