China: Daxing Watermelon Festival

Fresh Plaza: The Watermelon Festival in the Daxing district of Beijing is in full swing after starting last Friday. Until the 1st June many weird and wonderful examples of melon will be on display.  For example,
 there are competitions such as the "King of Watermelon." Grower Li Feng Chun exhibited a 50kg specimen in this. Other exhibits include such things as melons constrained so that they grow into certain shapes and those with patterns embedded on their skin. Source: Fresh Plaza
