Over the years I have learned to enjoy living in the Southern part of Mississippi, and one thing that is really popular here, is watermelons. And no place around can you get a better watermelon than The apple basket in downtown Petal. Usually they are the most sweetest, most juicy, and most tastiest you can find. They aren't too ripe, but they certainly aren't picked too early. Very smart staff will help with all of your fruit needs. Never have I been disappointed with this place.
