Stuff that Weighs More than Me: Giant Orange

Yup, that’s a person up there in the observation area!

Apparently, they just grow stuff bigger down under.  The search for the stats for the giant espresso pot, led me down a rabbit hole of really, really big stuff in Australia.  And the biggest of the really big fruit is this orange–which has observation windows and stairs.

Yup.  Most oranges contain some juicy citrus fruit and a few pips.  This orange incorporates a cafe, a souvenir shop, a 360-degree mural and a lookout area at the top.  This orange has stairs.

Speaking of planes, I’m hopping on one soon on my way to the ASDAH conference.  I’ll be speaking or leading classes all 3 days.  Can’t wait to see you there.

And just in case you’re wondering, “Orange you gonna share the stats?”  here they are:

Materials: Fiberglass panels over a steel frame

Height: 45 feet

Diameter: 36 feet

Levels: 4 (Yes, this orange has four floors!)

Weight: 85 Tons

Conclusion: The Big Orange weighs more than me.

Love,

    If you want to stick with the fruity theme, may I recommend the giant peach in Gaffney, SC? 🙂
