Doug Morrow, Russellville, with the 30.25 pound cantaloupe he raised in his garden. He weighed the cantaloupe at the Russellville Locker and Feed Supply, where he purchased the seed. The variety is unknown. "It must have been a rogue seed that got in his package. They were all supposed to be Hales Best variety, but one vine had three melons of this size on it." At right, Morrow compares the usual Hales Best to the giant melon. "And yes, it tastes great!" commented Morrow.
