That’s just all the gas building up inside the watermelon from all the raw sewage they use as fertilizer.

Ok people, I have grown watermelons commercially and I can tell you what is happening because I have had it happen to me before. What is happening is that when you grow watermelons and they stop growing before they mature, the rind will thicken. This is caused by a dry period, the melons slow down growing but the rind will thicken. If you get rain or irrigation after the rind thickens, the inside will start back to growing and bust the rind. This is especially worse if you have really warm weather at the same time. The article says that they had a large amount of rain. It is not some kind of conspiracy with growth enhancers or GM crops. It's just too much water after the rind thickens.
