A New Zealand couple believe that they have grown the world’s biggest potato.

Colin and Donna Craig-Brown were cleaning out their vegetable garden when they found a massive potato that weighed just under 8kg, and it might be a new world record.

Colin and Donna Craig-Brown weren’t sure of what they had discovered under a few inches of dirt in their garden. Only after they stabbed it with a fork did they discover the item was a potato.

The couple said the potato, which must have been growing in their garden for a couple years before being discovered, weighed 7.89kg. They have named the potato, “Doug,” and are applying to the Guinness World Records.

The current record-holder is a 4.9kg spud grown by British gardener Peter Glazebrook in 2011.
