Watermelon De-seeding Service

I'm tired of having to spit out the seeds

Cut watermelon and scoop out the seeds. Use Ultrasound or machine vision to automate the process. The result will be the watermelon in thin slices, placed together forming the original shape, packed with cling film or shrink wrap or similiar.

Service offered somewhere near (duh!) watermelons are sold.

       Packets of pre-sliced de-seeded melon are also baked. And overpriced and ridiculous.

       D'ye wanna see me with melon creepers sprouting from every orifice, UB?   

       This is not a product, it's a SERVICE, kropotkin.

       I also eat the seeds...never had a problem. Working the seeds out is a waste of time and detracts from the full enjoyment of eating a watermelon. We also used to pickle the rinds...highly delicious.

       Well, as a guy who trained up to eat an entire watermelon in a day, I applaud the novelty of the idea, although I like the seeds as part of the experience.

       //I like the seeds as part of the experience.// Exactly! Whether you spit or swallow [the seeds] it's all part of the fun! But I still bunned it for those who have issues with the seeds.
