Sweet fruit of summer

Workers pick watermelons, top, in a large field off State Road 44 east of Citrus Hills in Citrus County on Wednesday. Bo Haley planted 150 acres there in a joint venture with Melon King. He expects to fill 60 semitrailer trucks for shipping as far as Canada. Above, Leon Vernon of Oklahoma City tosses a watermelon to another worker on the truck. Melons heavier than 24 pounds are being sold at the field for $3.
