The Watermelon Capital Of The World

Season 3, Episode 06

Watermelon is grown around the world and in 44 U.S. states. It’s one of the most popular global fruits. But year-in and year-out, tiny Cordele, GA is named Watermelon Capital of the World for the sweetness and volume of watermelon that flows from there — there’s even a giant state of a watermelon slice to welcome visitors — along with a giant, decommissioned Titan missile that’s visible from the interstate and draws travelers from all over as they pass on Interstate 75.

The missile lures ’em in — the watermelon makes them want to come back. We’ll talk with some farmers and community leaders about how little Cordele has risen to such grand heights in the watermelon world.
