World's biggest ever onion - World's heaviest onion

It was enough to bring a tear to every gardener’s eye yesterday as pensioner Peter Glazebrook set a new record for the world’s heaviest onion.

The monster vegetable tipped the scales at 17lbs 15 and a half ounces - breaking the previous world record of 16lbs 8.37 ounces held by John Sifford, of the West Midlands, since 2005.

Peter, a 67-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 yesterday’s victory at Harrogate Flower Show.

He then wrapped it carefully in towels - to avoid it being bruised by potholes - before loading it into his estate car for the overnight drive, arriving at the Great Yorkshire Showground about 4am.

There was then a nail-biting wait while dozens of rival entries were loaded onto the scales before Peter was announced as the winner.

As well as the winning weight, the onion was also found to measure 30ins in circumference and 24ins from top to bottom.

He said yesterday: 'It has taken me at least 25 years. I have been growing them for that length of time.

'In that time, I have been very close to the world record but it always escaped me. It is the same seed as last year.

'But I have invested more time and money into growing it including automatic venting and heating.'

He also concentrated on a batch of just 10 plants instead of his usual 50 to pick a winner.

He grew them in 150 litre plant pots - big enough for a large tree - in John Innes Number 3 soil. 'I have been talking to them for nearly 12 months,' he added.

'I always asked them if they wanted more water and food.” He currently holds three other world records - heaviest potato, heaviest parsnip, and longest beetroot.

World's longest tongue


The latest edition of the Guinness Book of World Records boasts a number of record-breaking feats by Southern Californians.

Los Angeles resident Chanel Tapper, for example, can claim the state's longest tongue. Yup, that's right. Her tongue, according to Guinness, measures 3.8 inches from tip to top lip. She got beat out, though, for the world record by Stephen Taylor of the United Kingdom, whose licker measures 3.86 inches.

Local collectors also top the charts. Denise Tabangui of San Jacinto owns 2,429 cow-related items as of March 2011. The collection began in 1990 when she saw a cow figurine in her mother's kitchen. Now she needs a lot more than a kitchen to hold her own cow menagerie, which includes a life-sized calf that her neighbors gave her as a present.


Charlotte Lee of Huntington Beach owns 5,249 different rubber ducks -– enough for the record books. Her rubber friends are kept in glass showcases in a dedicated duck room.

Then there's W.R. 'Rusty' Haight of San Diego, who owns the dubious distinction of being in the most car collisions. By February 2003, the traffic collision reconstructionist had endured 718 collisions as a human crash-test dummy.

In all, there are 2,500 new records in the Guinness Book of World Records, including 39 Southern California records, a spokesman for the book says. So take heart, there's still hope for the rest of us next year.

World's Longest Fingernails set Guinness World Records 2012

World's Longest Fingernails set Guinness World Records 2012

*Chris “The Dutchess” Walton, a Las Vegas singer, recently made it into the 2012 Guinness Book of World Records for having 20 feet of nails on both hands.


And the Dutchess, 45, is proud of her nails, which she started growing 18 years ago.

“It’s kind of like a body part I was born with,” she told the New York Daily News.  “Now I don’t know what I would do without them.

“I’m pretty sure one day I will cut them, but I can’t see it in my head because I’m so used to having them.”

She added, It’s like a leg, I wouldn’t just chop it off so it’s gonna take some thinking.”

Now, that’s a nail biting thought.

“The Dutchess,” a mother of six girls and grandmother of three, says she started growing the nails by accident.

“I don’t know why I grew them. I just turned around and there they were,” she recalled.

No doubt her nails elicit comments and gasps wherever she goes.

The nail on her ring finger is the length of the average human arm, her left pinky nail is almost the height of a fire hydrant, and the middle finger on her left hand is as long as two hot dogs.

The rock singer claims that the nails do not pose an inconvenience and that she can cook, clean, drive and wash with ease.

She even texts using her knuckles.

The only problem she has encountered is that she has to alter her clothing.

“If I like a jacket, I’ll take the seam out of the arm and replace it with a zipper so I can get my nails in the sleeves,” she revealed.
