Indian-origin man's tomato plant may smash record
Monday September 16, 2013 11:06 PM, IANS

An Indian-origin gardener in the British city of Coventry has produced record number of tomatoes from a single plant and is vying for the Guinness World Record.

Surjit Kainth planted a single seed earlier this year in his garden, which to his astonishment, has grown into a huge plant and produced huge yield, the Coventry Telegraph reported.

His daughter Kiran persuaded him to contact the Guinness World Records' selection committee.

The plant produced a whopping 1,355 tomatoes and it could easily beat the current Guinness record of 488 from a single plant which is held by Graham Tranter from Shropshire, West Midlands region of England.

The official count of the number of tomatoes was filmed and all the documents would be sent off to the Guinness World Records offices to be authenticated. The final decision is expected in about six weeks.

Surjit was joined by his neighbours and Longford councillor Linda Bigham for the occasion.

"It's been a great pleasure to invite all these people here, including the dignitaries who have given their precious time," the Coventry Telegraph quoted Surjit was quoted as saying.
