GA melon growers go seedless

June 10, 2003

Tifton- Instead of growing seeded melons, they're growing more of the seedless variety.

The Georgia Watermelon Association estimates that at least half of this year's crop will be seedless. The popular melons bring in about 30 million dollars to the state each year.

Growers say seedless melons taste just as good as the seeded ones, but cost a lot more to grow.
