No its not one a them Chinese watermellons. It is an over ripe mellon on a hot day (and maybe in the sun).

Mother natures way of distributing seed.

I have watched a truck load self-destruct on a hot day at a farmers market.

Thanks for the explanation. I agree the truck load of exploding melons would be a sight, though not a pretty one for the farmer!
Have fun!

Its not a Hollywood kinda thing.

Low thump long pause, another low thump, another pause, three thumps...

And then watermellon juice leaks out of truck bed.
