DSC_8240An usually large cantaloupe, weighing some ten pounds, was harvested by an Anguillian farmer who credited the size to the deluge of rain on the island in recent times.
By any standard, the normal weight of a cantaloupe grown in Anguilla is usually between one and two pounds – or probably a little more, but ten pounds, is extraordinary.

The farmer, who preferred not to disclose his identity, or the location of his agricultural plot, for fear of customary invaders, had no problem to market his produce.

Someone knowing about the high quality of his produce, and a customer, had been waiting for him to turn up one day at his or her gate with the delicious fruit or vegetable – call it what you may. The price is your guess.
