José de Sousa, a 75-year-old farmer residing on the Airport Road in São Gonçalo, collected an unusual size anona. So much so that his son, Ivo de Sousa, decided to share a photo of the fruit. The balance indicates an approximate weight of 2.2 kilos.
Although large, José de Sousa’s anona is far from a record. Still two weeks ago, RTP-Madeira reported the case of a giant anotona, harvested in the Estreito de Calheta, with 4.9 kilos. There seems to be no doubt that the production of this fruit is being generous this winter.
