People in Arkansas like to talk watermelon. About how sweet the melons that grow up north by Cave City are, and the sheer size and variety farther south in Hope, whose watermelon festival attracts forty thousand people every August. "Ultimately, it doesn't matter. They are just damn good." says Capi Peck, the executive chef and co-owner of Trio's in Little Rock, who has been eating Arkansas watermelon practically since she was born.
