Do you know the cultivator that you are growing?
Your 'seedy' fruit may be nothing more then the variety you are growing.
Good growing conditions will give you the the best fruit possible, full of flavor but will still contain upwards of 70 seeds if your growing a seedy variety.
Here are some links with more information.
