I weighed a small one and it worked out more expensive than £2 at other supermarkets BUT this is seedless
This is seedless and really good.
Local high st stores and market stalls in London are selling these @ 59p a kilo
local Turkish supermarkets have this at 69 and 79p a kilo. With my nearest at 95p! so 70p is a very good deal for a supermarket.
Mine wasn't seedless, kids moaned. I liked it tho. Not the best quality as was different shades of red internally which was odd as I'd never seen this before with other supermarket purchases. Bit off putting

I actually thought it was 70p as advertised with a big red board.

I queried this at the till as it came up at £2.80 odd, the guy at the till said you must be about the 10th person to say that this morning.
You can peel the rind and use it in pickles or curries
This has been on for weeks as I buy on weekly basis. But I have found Asda's are better in quality and cheaper: £2 each which, comparatively, are cheaper than Lidl's as I have tried and weighed both on my last 2 shops.

Ditto for the honeydew melons (£1 at Asda as compared to £1.50+ at Lidl).
But still a good deal for those who do not have Asda around.

that sounds really tasty
Cold normal price
Ahhh I was about to give this heat. Then I saw that this is 70 pence PER KILO. This is not hot, this is just a normal, but expensive price.

If it was 70p per watermelon I would give heat.

Sorry, I am going to have to give this one an arctic blast

Per Kg is very misleading price, no others sell it like that. My local didn't even weight them, charge £2 each straight, same price as all other big stores.
Got a 5kg+ one at my local for 99p. The cheapest ever I had seen so far. They were selling even bigger ones at 59p/kg. Seemed to me it was overstock.
