Huge Onion and a Potato Too


Peter Glazebrook outdid himself this year at the Harrogate Autumn Flower Show. Not only did he grow the biggest onion, weighing in at 17 pounds, 15.5 ounces, likely a world record, but he also brought in the heaviest cabbage (64lb 2oz), potato (6lb 10.75oz), and tomato (2lb 11.25oz). He had the longest runner bean at 31 inches and cucumber at 32.5 inches. He’s been bringing in his giant veggies and tubers for several years and holds the world’s record for heaviest parsnip, and longest beetroot.
