Probably not quite useless. The seeds are probably edible. The
egushi, a very bitter watermelon relative, is widely grown in Africa for
its seeds. The natives have a "technique" for shelling the seeds and
several hulless or nearly hulless varieties have been developed. I
suppose that it just depends on the size of the seeds.
