Photo: David Thomas has broken a 91-year-old record for the world’s heaviest red cabbage.
The Guinness World Records world record for the heaviest cabbage weighed 62.71 kg (138.25 lb) and was presented at the Alaska State Fair by Scott A. Robb (USA) in Palmer, Alaska, USA, on 31 August 2012.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest cabbage dish; it is 2,960 kg (6,525.68 lb).
David Thomas has been growing vegetables competitively for more than 15 years, and said the cabbage took “hours of work”.
The previous Guinness world record was set by Mr R Straw in 1925, whose red cabbage weighed 19.05kg.
Mr Thomas already holds the official world records for the heaviest parsnip (7.85kg) and heaviest cucumber (12.9kg) — both also broken at the same show in previous years.
