If you’re big on fruit and vegetables, you’re in for a big treat.
Top Fives compiled a list of the 15 biggest fruit and vegetables ever recorded, and it blew our minds.
Pumpkins are not only a favourite on the dinner table, but they’re also the fruit associated with Halloween. And, yes, according to botanists, pumpkins are a fruit not a vegetable.
In the United States, pumpkin carving is a fun activity, but can you imagine carving out a pumpkin that weighs an incredible 1,190 kilograms? It’s not only going to take a long time, but it’s definitely going to take a village.
The biggest pumpkin ever recorded was grown in a small village in Belgium, and it got first prize at the Giant Pumpkin European Championship. Seriously, it’s a thing, and farmers get quite competitive when it comes to their veggies around there.
If one small onion can drive a large adult to tears, imagine what the world’s biggest onion can do?
Peter Glazebrook, a New York native, broke his own record by growing the world’s heaviest onion. The tear-jerker weighed in at a massive eight kilograms.
While growing massive vegetables isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, it seems as if Peter has the talent for it. He not only holds the world record for the heaviest onion, but also for the longest parsnip as well as the heaviest cauliflower in the world.
The average sweet melon weighs between 900 grams and 4.5 kilograms. But, if you own the biggest sweet melon in the world, yours weigh about 30 kilograms. Not quit average, is it?
According to the guy who produced it, this giant sweet melon was harvested only five months after its seeds were planted.
While these fruit and vegetables might feed an entire family for a while, it’s definitely not aimed at your average supermarket shopper.
