Giant vegetables on show at Kehelland
10:00am Tuesday 18th September 2012 in Cornwall
There were giant carrots and massive pumpkins on show at Kehelland as the trust hosted the 16th Annual Giant Vegetable Competition and Show on Saturday.
The show is the only of its kind in Cornwall and seeing really is believing, with 500lb pumpkins, yard-long carrots and colossal cabbages.
Manager at Kehelland Trust, Robert Williamson said: “Size really is everything at this show. No marks are awarded for how beautiful any of the vegetables are, they just have to measure up”
Rob added that organisers added more categories over the years to satisfy the more creative growers, including “the ‘most unusual looking vegetable’ and a ‘vegetable creature’.
Rob said: "We are fortunate that we have a good partnership with Kehelland Village School who always have a go at making vegetable creatures. Our clients enjoy taking part and have won prizes for giant vegetables grown on site in previous years."
