A SIX-ton potato made of steel, plaster, and concrete has been touring the US since 2012, and is now open in Boise, Idaho.

Having recently been transformed into an Airbnb, it includes everything needed for a night's stay, including a custom-made bed and refrigerator.

McAlister's Deli, an American chain of fast food restaurants, recently offered customers the opportunity to compete in a competition to win a stay inside the huge potato structure, along with a ride on the Big Idaho Potato Truck, a semitrailer that carries a four-ton fiberglass potato.
