But for those who nail the growing process, huge products can be produced.

Earlier this week, Guinness World Records (GWR) revealed some of the world's biggest vegetables produced by farmers.

In a video posted on their Instagram page, they shared a glimpse of what went down at this year’s CANNA UK National Giant Vegetables Championship competition in Malvern, Worcestershire, where farmers battled it out. Winners acquired coveted GWR titles for the giant vegetables they produced.

The video they shared is incredible and features some of the biggest vegetables in the world that will surely amaze you.

“These pro gardeners are obsessed with growing the world's biggest vegetables,” they wrote while sharing the video.

From pumpkin to tomato, the clip shows various huge-sized vegetables and also the people who made that possible.
