KELOWNA—A little garden in Kelowna has produced one huge cucumber.
Daniel Tomelin did a little digging, and found out it just might be a record breaker.
He got gardening expert Don Burnett to measure it to submit an entry into the Guiness Book of World records, and
Burnett found it to be 44 inches long. That’s more than three and a half feet.
It can take the people at Guiness up to twelve weeks to process a claim, and the big cucumber simply won’t last that long.
To preserve his prize, Tomelin built his own custom pickle jar, and plans to turn the giant cuke into a dill pickle.
