The tweet was shared by entrepreneur Ritu Malhotra, who wrote about how the orange grew at her friend's farm in the city of Nagpur, Maharashtra. The city is known for its orange production, and thus also referred to as the Orange City of India. According to Malhotra's tweet, the giant orange measured 24 inches in circumference and 8 inches in height. Further, the weight of the orange was 1.425kg as on 23rd November, 2020.
The incredibly large orange went viral and got amazing reactions from Twitterati, who couldn't believe their eyes on seeing the huge whopper. Some commented that it was actually looking like a different variety of orange altogether. Others joked that it would be fun to spray the juice from its peels into people's eyes as a prank.
