Varieties of Watermelon

I visited a local farmer's market over the weekend and picked up a watermelon that I've never encountered before: a moon & stars watermelon, which has a dark green rind with yellow spots on it and rather large seeds, which as I ate (the watermelon, not the seeds), thought these would make for great watermelon seed spitting.

Sorry I did not take any pictures.  I was and am under the weather and didn't realize there was something subtly different about this watermelon, until I broke the thing open and started eating it.

Anyhow, Saveur has a gallery on some of the varieties of watermelons and here is a random article specifically about the moon & stars watermelon.
