Sweet Cantaloupe Mojito
If you live in North Carolina, congratulations: your state holds the official record for the world's largest Cantaloupe.
Clocking in at 65.9 pounds, the monster cantaloupe can outweigh seven gallons of milk, three human legs, or an average-size Christmas tree.
The record was reached thanks to a farmer named Danny Vester, a cancer survivor whose life seems to revolve around growing large fruit. In his past, Vester has also grown a 237-pound watermelon, two 55-pound cantaloupes, and one 1,404-pound pumpkin.
