The heaviest watermelon

FeaturedThe heaviest watermelon

This fruit has something special, its weight and volume do not know rivals easily. Not far ago a watermelon with a surprising weight of 121 kilograms and a bit more was documented in Arkhansas by the Guinness World Records, considerably popular nowadays.

Those watermelons are difficult to find in supermarkets and it looks like there's a specific technique for growing very heavy fruits of this kind. In fact this huge citrullus lanatus came in a competition of heavy units. How?

Nothing too singular this time, the technique seems based in certain varieties with great potential growth, space, water and fertilizers. These last ones aren't of course necessary when the substrate has enough elements by itself and perhaps no one overexploited it without respecting the natural cycles of regeneration!
