HAPPY NATIONAL WATERMELON DAY!
Hope, Arkansas, home of the World’s Largest Watermelons. Mr. & Mrs. Lester Kent of Route 1 (Highway 29 South) Hope, Arkansas proudly display two giant watermelons, their largest, grown in 1969, weighed 153 pounds. In 1968-69-70, the Kents grew the World’s Champion Watermelons. Hope holds the World Record of 195 pounds in 1935.
So large that they spell them with TWO “L”s! (It is spelled correctly on the verso.)
