Chinese watermelon plant yields 131 fruit for Guinness World Record

Zhengzhou Research Seedling Technology Co., Ltd., a Chinese agricultural technology company, created the mass-producing plant, codenamed “Tianlong 1508.” While typical watermelon plants only yield between one and four fruit, the research team gave some extra TLC to Tianlong 1508, making sure its vines were untangled and it received a daily dose of temperature-controlled water mixed with fertilizer . The hard work paid off, seeing as each and every one of the 131 watermelons survived to grow nice and plump for the harvest.
