The world’s oldest living person, 128-year-old Ali Mihan, is not only still alive and kicking but alive and fruit-picking.

Ali, who claims to have been born on June 25, 1886, remains in good health.

Her family say growing Hami melons is part of her life, and she still insists on working in the field in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.

The business is no small enterprise, either; Ali’s 1.3 hectare melon farm produces approximately 16, 000 melons every year.

"Marco Polo was mad for my melons." Ali Mihan claims to be a tender looking 128 years old.

Not content with limiting herself to the local market, Ali is keen to get her melons mobile by going global.

Thanks to website papai.com, launched on Wednesday, you can now see Ali’s melons online and taste the fruits of her labor yourself…
