Size of geometry columns?

In a table of polygons of California counties, one is unusually large (around 100K characters in WKT) and gets truncated in the geometry column. The rest of the polygons work fine.

It's my understanding that geometry columns are stored as BLOBs, which would make sense as it would truncate at 65K characters. Is there any way to change the size of the geometry column so that it will accomodate larger polygons, i.e., tell MySQL to store it as a MEDIUMBLOB or LONGBLOB instead of a BLOB?
