ALBANY, GA (WALB) - It may not be a record breaker, but it is a whopper of a watermelon. Take a look at this 74-pounder grown in Albany.

Harold Harris and Arthur Lee Wright grew this monster by using a special blend of fertilizer and lots of water. They finally decided to cut the vine Monday and put the monster melon to good use. 

"Cut it ,and slice it, and dice it," said Harold Harris. "The plan is to eat it."

"That's what our goal is, to grow the biggest watermelon in Georgia and with the Lord's will, I hope we can do it next year."

The two say they experiment with different fertilizers and types of watermelons to grow them as large as possible.
