Personal seedless watermelons

Again, slightly off-topic: I've seen the small watermelons referred to
as "ice-box melons". It sounds more than a bit archaic. At the same
time, there is a mini-fad among foodies to use retro-language.

FWIW, I agree with Charlie--a watermelon under 12 lb is not worth
multiple sittings.


PS: Completely off-topic--has anyone tried making watermelon lemonade?
Or "limeade" for that matter? The latter might work well with honeydew
melons as well... Just a thought...
