World record breaking carrot weighs in at 23 pounds

Grown by gardener Chris Qualley of Minnesota, Canada the 22.44 pound carrot looks like an entire ecosystem of smaller carrots. 

Verified by Guinness World Records, the organisation says that the entire weight of the vegetable did not include any sticks, dirt or stones.

The previous record, held by Peter Glazebrook from the United Kingdom, topped out at just over 20 pounds.

Qualley tells Guinness that he actually set out to grow the record-breaking vegetable, saying, “Yes – that was my goal. I think everyone that grows giant fruits and veggies has a dream in the back of their mind to set a world record and I was lucky enough to have a dream come true.”
