Mayo watermelon had no seeds

R

These water melons are some of hardiest and strongest water melons that I have ever grown. If you spit the seeds outside into the Arizona desert landscape, the following year's monsoons will bring them to life. They won't just sprout and die like almost any modern watermelon variety. They will grow and reach maturity in unimproved Arizona desert soil. How can you compete with a watermelon like this? I cannot rely on any other watermelon varieties in the Arizona heat and drought conditions of the desert. Have a survival garden? Make sure this variety is a part of it.
