The World’s Largest Fruits

The World’s Largest Fruits

In a lot of ways, it’s pretty wonderful that we live at a time where we can benefit from the work and intelligence of literally thousands of generations of people. We rarely think of the people alive today who work to bring us are food, let alone the people tens of thousands of years ago who began the process of creating the hundreds of different varieties of food we find in our grocery stores today.

Thanks to all those dead people!

    Oh my god. _Turtles All the Way Down_ comes out in just a few days… and I don’t have the time to read it.

    about 10 years ago my dad gave some guy these “giant pumpkin seeds”. the guy grew 2 really big pumpkins, the smaller one was about 50kg, the larger they couldn’t lift onto the bathroom scales they were using. someone heard about them and stole both of them.
