Well, you'll get a watermelon vine, which can then yield watermelons.

Assuming you don't mean the little white "seeds" in seedless watermelons. Those won't grow because seedless watermelons are a triploid variety whose seeds are created by pollinating a tetraploid watermelon flower with pollen from a normal diploid variety.

Correct. I mean these types of black seeds from watermelons, of course:



I had my own watermelon vines as a kid from local market watermelons in PR.
