Watermellon Seed Spitting
Hope, Arkansas is a small town with a big tradition. Each year, this small community of self-confessed “melon heads” hosts the Hope Watermelon Festival and Watermelon Seed Spitting contest. The competition is fierce, attracting seed-spitting champions from all over the state. In between bouts of hard labor on a watermelon farm – where the world’s heaviest melons are grown – Bob will perfect his seed spitting technique under the tutelage of ten year-old champion Emily Rowe.
