Too pretty to eat…

By Staff
GIANT FRUIT Robert F. Hathorn of Meridian displays some of the oranges he grew at his home this fall.
The orange he is holding is the largest he has grown, weighing in at an amazing 13/4 pounds. Hathorn said the same tree produced 11 other oranges almost as large. The giant orange has been growing since May, but it won't last much longer. Hathorn said he plans to eat it, just as soon as everyone has had a good look at it.
