Have you ever wondered what the largest vegetable ever grown is? How about the largest fruit? Well wonder no more as the team at HowLongToCook.org breaks it down in this chart
of record-holding fruits and vegetables. The chart includes forty-three of them, and the official record weight they grew to be. Here you’ll find vegetables, like a beet or radish, that normally grow to the size of your hand reaching weights of fifty pounds or more. You’ll certainly need more than one hand to lift those! The largest record-breaking vegetable on the list is the summer squash, which reached an incredible weight of 256 pounds. The largest fruits, on the other hand, are a different story. Three different types of fruit grew even larger than the summer squash. The largest bunch of bananas was recorded at 287 pounds, and the largest watermelon was even bigger at 350 pounds. But neither compare to the top fruit on the list. The largest pumpkin on record reached a weight of 2,702 pounds, the size of a small car!
