A whopping 11 new Guinness World Records have been set at the Malvern Autumn Show this September 2022.
The CANNA UK National Giant Vegetables Championship takes place at the Malvern Autumn Show each year, with the globally-recognised competition bringing growers from all the over the country to the Three Counties Showground to show off their giant veg and be in with a shot at a Guinness World Record.
The competition is a huge hit with visitors too, providing plenty of photo opportunities next to the massive marrows, enormous aubergines and tall turnips.
This year's contenders broke 11 Guinness World Records - the most that's ever been achieved at the Malvern Autumn Show and more than double what was achieved in 2021.
The heaviest veg included a 121.6 kilogram field pumpkin; a 3.362 kilogram aubergine; a 2.616 kilogram luffa; a 176 gram runner bean; and a 184 gram broad bean.
The longest veg were a 1.432 metre leek; a 4.605 metre turnip; a 2.847 metre potato plant; a 769 millimetre runner bean; a 697 millimetre luffa; and a 396 millimetre broad bean.
Head of shows at Three Counties Showground, Jane Edwards, said: 'We are absolutely thrilled that the efforts of our world record breaking growers have resulted in the largest number of new Guinness World Record titles ever achieved at Malvern Autumn Show.
'The whole event is run in partnership with CANNA UK and is one of the most popular features at our annual celebration of Autumn.'
