Watermelon

watermelonswater melonCitrullus lanatus'' var. ''lanatus
Common varieties of seedless fruits include watermelons, tomatoes, grapes (such as Termarina rossa ), and bananas.
Watermelon is grown in tropical and subtropical areas worldwide for its large edible fruit, also known as a watermelon, which is a special kind of berry with a hard rind and no internal division, botanically called a pepo. The sweet, juicy flesh is usually deep red to pink, with many black seeds, although seedless varieties have been cultivated.

Termarina rossa

Common varieties of seedless fruits include watermelons, tomatoes, grapes (such as Termarina rossa ), and bananas.
The grape is unique among Vitis vinifera varieties in that it is naturally seedless.

Fruit

A seedless fruit is a fruit developed to possess no mature seeds. The term "seedless fruit" is biologically somewhat contradictory, since fruits are usually defined botanically as mature ovaries containing seeds.
Commercial cultivars of bananas and pineapples are examples of seedless fruits.

Parthenocarpy

parthenocarpic parthenocarpousparthenocarp
Seedless fruits can develop in one of two ways: either the fruit develops without fertilization (parthenocarpy), or pollination triggers fruit development, but the ovules or embryos abort without producing mature seeds (stenospermocarpy).
Stenospermocarpy may also produce apparently seedless fruit, but the seeds are actually aborted while they are still small.

Tomato

Common varieties of seedless fruits include watermelons, tomatoes, grapes (such as Termarina rossa ), and bananas. Some species, such as tomato, pineapple, and cucumber, produce fruit in which there is no seed to be found if not pollinated but will produce seeded fruit if pollination occurs.

Polyploidy

Seedless banana and watermelon fruits are produced on triploid plants, whose three sets of chromosomes make it very unlikely for meiosis to successfully produce spores and gametophytes.

Aneuploidy

aneuploidaneuploidiesdisomy
This is because one of the three copies of each chromosome can't pair with another appropriate chromosome before separating into daughter cells, so these extra third copies end up randomly distributed between the two daughter cells from meiosis 1, resulting in the (usually) swiftly lethal aneuploidy condition.

Ploidy

Such plants can arise by spontaneous mutation or by hybridization between diploid and tetraploid individuals of the same or different species.

Pineapple
