From corner stands in the state’s capital to farmers’ markets in small towns, Cave City watermelons can be found statewide.
Cave City melons are not only Arkansas famous, but world famous as the town sign reads “home of the world’s sweetest watermelon.” Locals from the town of 2,000 will tell you the secret is in the soil, not just in the seeds!
The annual Cave City Watermelon Festival’s website has an official list of growers, but the only way to be sure it’s a legitimate Cave City melon is to check for the official sticker. Never a stamp! Yum!
