Fuller Groover


Mr. Fuller Groover, of the Fuller Groover Company of Quitman Georgia, was one of the original members of the executive committee.  At the time the National Melon Distributors Association was formed he had been in the watermelon industry for about 27 years. He is said to be one of the pioneer melon growers of the country.  

“Fuller Groover has been known so long in the melon business as to need no introduction to the trade. When Mr. Groover sells you a car of melons and says “It is all right,” it is all right, and as represented.” – Chicago Packer, June 10, 1911.
