    I just saw some at Nob Hill in Alameda a couple of days ago.

      They come in all year from Mexico or wherever. The earliest varieties from the warmest areas of California start coming in in May. Local farmers, probably July.

        Been eating the small bowling ball size seedless ones from Whole foods for the last 2 weeks. They are great because you can pop them in the fridge and have a nice cold sweet treat.

          We've already eaten through 3 full size watermelons from various Costco's (Mtn View, Sunnyvale) and two weekends ago had the minis from Lucky's and all of them have been good.
