Giant is no potato record-breaker afterall

GUINNESS World Records says the latest candidate for largest potato doesn’t qualify - because it’s not a potato! 

New Zealand gardeners, Donna and Colin Craig-Brown, thought they had dug up a world record-breaking potato, but after submitting an application with pictures and a specimen, Guinness World Records sent an email to the Craig-Browns letting them know they had a tuber from a gourd, not a potato.
