Bryce and Christopher Naquin show off their sweet and juicy Washington Parish watermelons at their produce stand just north of Zachary on La. Highway 19.

Watermelon sales tend to reach their zenith coming into the Fourth of July holiday each year. For two young produce salesmen in Zachary, the sales are slower now, but they still stick with it.
