A 19-year-old agricultural student has succeeded in growing exotic watermelons in Herefordshire.

Joe De Pascalis challenged a local fruit and vegetable grower that he could harvest a crop of the fruit.

He used an artificial heater on the seedlings to emulate the sunnier climes in which watermelons are usually grown.

His produce will go on sale at Tesco on Thursday.

“These watermelons taste so good that we don’t think shoppers will be able to tell the difference between them and the imported ones sold on high streets from Spain and Brazil.

“Joe has clearly done a very good job growing them and in doing so made a mark on British agriculture."

– Tesco produce manager James Cackett
