Heaviest Onion

Heaviest Onion

World Record of growing heaviest Onion has been achieved by Peter Glazebrook from Harrogate, England. This heaviest onion weighed 18lb and 1oz at the Harrogate Autumn Flower Show.

Peter, a 68-year-old retired chartered  surveyor, who lives near Newark, has broken ten world records in his 30 years of  gardening.

He has been trying for the honour of  cultivating the world’s heaviest onion for 25 years but always missed out until  the  victory at Harrogate Flower Show.

Mr Glazebrook, 68, from Newark has a knack  for producing oversized vegetables, winning all six classes in the giant  vegetable section.

The amateur farmer holds an array of world  records for his prowess in the garden.
