China's melons have hit the TV and radio recently ...and hit the tractors and greenhouses, too. It seems Chinese melons have been exploding in their hundreds in Jiangsu Province and nobody is quite sure why. Is it the new brand of seeds from "radioactive" Japan? Or the overuse of fertilizer causing too rapid a growth? Or the unusual weather? Whatever the cause, two-thirds of the crops in some areas have blown up and worried Government scientists are investigating. Only in China, eh?
