PRODUCTION RESPONSES BY AREA FOR FLORIDA WATERMELONS

Total United States production of watermelons was 22,606 thousand cwt. in 1980, of which Florida produced 7863 thousand cwt. (34.8 percent). The total value of United States production of watermelons was 149.2 million dollars in 1980. The value of the Florida watermelon crop was 46.5 million dollars, or 31.1 percent of the United States total. This indicates that the Florida watermelon industry supplies a major proportion of the total domestic U.S. market. For example, during the 1980 spring production season in the U.S., Florida produced 72.3 percent. The value of only the watermelons produced in Florida comprise 7.8 percent of the total value of the principal vegetables produced for the fresh market in Florida.
