UK grower harvests 839 tomatoes from a single stem

By harvesting 839 tomatoes from one single stem, a UK grower goes for a Guinness World Record attempt. The current world record is 488, says UK grower Douglas Smith, who is currently awaiting verification from Guinness itself. 

According to an article in the UK newspaper The Sun, it took an hour to harvest all the pound coin-sized fruit, which weighed more than 9lb.

Douglas, 43, filmed the count and called in a priest and a policeman as witnesses so it can be verified as a new Guinness World Record.
