A couple in New Zealand may have stumbled across the world’s largest potato.
According to the couple, the potato, which they have christened “Doug the Ugly Potato” due to its immense and awkward shape, weighs 17.4 pounds and is a contender for a new world record.
Colin and Donna Craig-Brown say they came across the giant tuber in their garden, but were initially confused about their discovery.
“I said to Donna, ‘It’s a potato,’ and she went, ‘No.’ I said, ‘Yeah it is!'” Colin recalled.
The couple have applied to have the potato recognized as the world’s largest by Guinness World Records. The current record for the largest potato is 11 pounds.
