World’s Longest Carrot

Category: Amazing photos

Tired of your puny carrot in the produce aisle in your local grocery
store? Tokyobling blog ran across this carrot shown above at a supermarket
in Tokyo.

Apparently, it’s a breed called the “Javelot” long carrot (I can imagine where they get the name: what do you get when you cross a javelin with a carrot?) It is bred and sold by Exhibition Seeds: Link

But that’s not even close to the world record for longest carrot! Joe Atherton of Mansfield Woodhouse in Nottinghamshire is the Guinness World Record holder of the longest carrot ever recorded: 19 feet and 1.875 inches (5.84 m)
