That’s One Heck of A Squash!

I’m not familiar with a vegetable called a marrow (it seems to be some kind of squash), but this one is apparently the biggest ever at 113 pounds! There were lots of huge vegetables at a giant vegetable show in England.

The skin is craggy and dark, indicating it might not make the best offering at dinner, but it overtook the current world record by a whopping three kilos.

Grown by Ken Dade, from Norfolk, it had benefitted from the wet conditions during the spring and summer.Show organiser Roy Davey is hopeful the show could yet produce another giant vegetable record. ‘We have hopes for a record cucumber,’ he said.

There’s a picture of the cucumber at The Daily Mail, but I can’t tell how long it is.
