Timothy Killette weighs fresh seedless watermelon as Rodney Beasley, far left, fills box crates with graded watermelons for distribution to local markets and groceries. Each box of watermelon will weigh close to 700 lbs. and contain 60 watermelons. Killette grows nearly 29 acres of watermelon on his Duplin County farmland and also sells quantity watermelon from other growers in North Carolina. Killette's farm can be found by a hand painted sign placed next to Hwy. 117 South, welcoming "individuals and peddlers" to buy market ready watermelons picked daily from the fields. Killette's farm is located at 170 George Garner Road, between Faison and Warsaw.
