News, but not the serious kind
When life gives you lemons the size of beach balls…
Here’s a fact: the whole world is intrigued by abnormally large vegetables and fruit. Go to any state fair and you’re sure to find bright blue ribbons pinned on proud farmers holding gourds, watermelons and turnips of creepy proportions.
Which is why it’s worth a look at Cyprus, where they’re growing lemons weighing up to five pounds! Okay, bring me the biggest pie crust you can find, and lots of meringue… Here’s the story:
