Chinese farmer smashes world record for growing biggest ever cucumber

By Nitsi

London, Oct 07 (ANI): A Chinese farmer has broken the world record for growing the biggest ever cucumber - using house dung.

Akele Hi grew the monster veg, which is 5ft 7ins long and weighs 154lbs, on his vegetable patch in Hefei, southern China.

He took the record from a Brit - Frank Dimmock, from Thame, Oxfordshire - whose cucumber reached a length of 3ft 5ins.

Akele says he did nothing but water the plant and put the odd shovelful of horse dung on it.

"All the other cucumbers from the same packet grew to a normal size.

But right in the middle of them this monster wouldn't stop growing," the Sun quoted him as saying. (ANI)
