A British gardener has grown the world’s largest ever marrow weighing a monstrous 255lbs – smashing the current record by nearly 50lbs.
Vince Sjodin, 49, unveiled the gigantic vegetable at the UK National Giant Vegetables Championship on Friday.
Vince carted his 255lbs masterpiece all the way from Wales to the Malvern Autumn Show in Worcestershire.
It was measured by an adjudicator for Guinness World Records – breaking the record for biggest ever marrow on the planet.
The previous record was set by Dutch farmer Brad Wursten in September 2009 who registered a marrow weighing 206.5 pounds.
Kevin Fortey, 43, also broke the record for the UK’s largest cantaloupe melon weighing in at 32lbs.
The pair were extremely thrilled with their achievements and are striving to grow even larger vegetables in the future.
