My mom has had diverticulitis (sp?) -- it's an icky condition where the lining of your intestine gets kind of ragged and things like seed can stick in it and really cause a lot of distress. I've heard conflicting information about the "seeds" issue, but anecdotally, if my mom stays away from nuts, seeds and "itty bitty foods," she feels a lot more comfortable.

I don't mind the seeds. I think the recipes that call for seedless are just doing that because the seeds could bother some people (appearance/taste). I personally would use whatever I could find.
