Boy, I have no idea. If the melon's a hybrid, though, you might not end up with quite as good a melon from seed.

I don't know how much growing season you have left, but last summer I dumped some watermelon seeds in compost pile and they sprouted almost right away. My growing season isn't long enough for them to mature, but yours might be. I can't help you with figuring out what kind it was though. Maybe your son could ask his friend.
