Strawberry Of The Week

Congratulations go to Israeli farmer, Chahi Ariel, who has just been confirmed as the producer of the world’s heaviest strawberry by Guinness World Records. Tipping the scales at a whopping 289kg, beating the previous record set by a strawberry grown in Fukuoka in Japan of 250kg by some distance.

The strawberry is from the Ilan variety, known for producing hefty fruit, and was picked in February 2021. It has since been stored in a freezer, waiting for the record to be verified. During the wait, it has become a shadow of its former glory and looks pretty unedifying.

Still, a record is a record!
