That's a huge melon!

July 12, 2005

Albany-- Get your tastebuds ready. Two South Georgia farmers have grown one huge treat.

It weighs more than 63-pounds and it grew with no special secrets. Harris Harold and Arthur Wright are both retired and like farming in their spare time. Last year, they decided to start planting melon seeds. This season they found a big surprise.

"I haven't seen a watermelon that big since I was about nine years old," says Wright.

"He called me and told me we have a monster out there and I'm like what are you talking about. We went out there and I said wow!," says Harold.

They've also grown some 20 and 30 pounders. They say the big ones are just as sweet.
