Yeah, I think if I am walking through Publix or Winn Dixie, looking at a few fruits and veggies, and there's an explosion, I would be a tad taken aback.

Melons aren't supposed to explode in front of you.

However, that is exactly what is happening in many southern states like Alabama, Georgia, and Florida.

We had this heatwave in the last month that was pretty brutal.

This is part of the issue.

The extreme summer heat is causing watermelons to undergo the same process that happens during wine and beer making. If you know anything about that kind of thing, and I do not, you learn why this might be happening.

You see, when the sugar is converted into alcohol, CO2 gas builds up inside the fruit.

That leads fruit lovers to find that the watermelons they brought home are hissing or oozing liquid on the counters.

Video evidence begins right here.

Another thing that my FRUIT is NOT supposed to be doing.

If my peaches, plums, strawberries, oranges, or melons start "hissing" at me, I'm done.

More video evidence of this happening, everywhere, it appears.

This is the last thing I, or YOU, needed to add to the list of insane things to be concerned about this year!
More GREAT video evidence from some idiots that I would probably have helped with this madness.
