The World’s 10 Largest Fruits and Vegetables

 PUP GTM
lemon GTMWorld’s Largest Lemons
When the world needs lemonade, make sure you’ve got the world’s heaviest lemons… those weighing 5.265 kg (11 pounds, 9.7 ounces) and grown by Aharon Shemoel of Kfar Zeitim, Israel in early 2003 will do quite nicely. Other larger-than-life lemons of note are grown along the Amalfi Coast in Italy, where they’re used to make a drink called Limoncello. Pucker up, buttercup!
pineapple gtmWorld’s Largest Pineapples
Pineapples are the Terminators of the fruit family: they’re big, well-protected and will cut you if you’re not careful. There’s a hierarchy among Terminators, however, and a certain spiky specimen grown in Palmerston, Australia is the worst of the bunch… or at least, the heaviest. Christine McCallum grows pineapple to keep wayward dogs and grandchildren off her garden and the 8.2 kg (18.08 lb), 32cm (12.8″) long record-breaker probably kept the mailman on his toes as well.
jackfruit GTMWorld’s Heaviest Jackfruit (76 Lbs or 34.4 Kg)
The sweet tasting fruit weighed 34.6kg (76lb 4.4oz), measured 57.46 cm (22.625in) long and had a circumference of 121.28 cm on 8 August 2003. It was grown by George and Margaret Schattauer of Captain Cook, Hawaii, USA. Native to Western India, the fruit spread throughout South East Asia and first came to Hawaii in 1888.
cabbage GTMWorld’s Largest Green Cabbage (76 Lbs or 34.4 Kg)
John Evans, a mechanical designer who lives 40 miles north of Anchorage in Palmer, Alaska, holds seven world records for giant vegetables. One of them is this Green Cabbage, who weighed over 76 lb, making it a world record in 1998.

WAT GTMWorld’s Largest Watermelons

If records were meant to be broken, then watermelons will be grown to break them. The latest heavyweight champion of the watermelon variety comes from Sevier County, Tennessee, and weighs in at a whopping 291 pounds. The monster “Carolina Cross” melon shattered the previous record of 268 pounds held by a watermelon from Arkansas.

 

 

ONION GTM

Onion

The last item on our list is the 7.7 kg onion grown by Peter Glazebrook of the UK, who earned this world record in September 2011. Glazebrook has broken ten world records in his 30 years of growing his own veggies and looked delighted with his prize. Look how he’s holding it. He seems to love that onion almost as much as we love Bob!

 

Do Not Copy / Not For Sale

World’s Largest Bananas

Who is the real Top Banana? Meet the Rhino Horn Plantain, a banana cultivar originating in Africa that bears fruit up to 2 feet (60cm) long – though average specimens range from 12 to 14 inches (about 32cm). Don’t be put off by the “plantain” thing, these jumbo specimens taste great raw or fried. Trouble is, the kids are gonna need MUCH bigger lunchboxes to hold ’em.

 

PUP GTMWorld’s Largest Pumpkin (1689 Lbs or 766 Kg)

Grown in Rhode Island, the world’s biggest pumpkin was shown at the Topsfield Fair of Massachusetts in 2007, weighing 1689 lbs.

 

 

 

SWEET PO GTMSweet Potato

We hope Lebanese farmer Khalil Semhat liked sweet potatoes. He grew one weighing 11.3 setting a record for the world’s largest potato. Afterwards, he could be heard asking all his friends, “Would you like fries with that?”

 

 

ORANGE GTMWorld’s Largest Oranges

Orange you glad somebody’s trying to make oranges bigger? Sure you are, and that certain someone happens to be Huang Ah-Hsien of Taiwan’s Agricultural Research Institute. Huang’s not known as the “God of Citrus” for nothing: in his 20-year career at the Institute, he’s created 170 new types of citrus fruits. He’s hit the motherlode, however, with the mother of all oranges – the King Orange that’s as big as your face and weighs about a pound & a third (0.6 kg) each.

 

  GTM.
