UK couple growing vegetables the size of small adults

Although Tahira and Mujeeb Mirza have won numerous awards for their growing abilities, their latest endeavour may just be the best one yet. The couple managed to grow a few dudhis (gourds) to a staggering 4ft 10in (125 cm) in height.

"We are very proud that for a few years we have been getting awards also for our garden from Croydon Council," Mrs Mirza said. "We have a small garden but enjoy all types of fruits and vegetables."

Her plan for the dudhis? "If you make it with lamb and vegetable curry, it really is a great meal," she said. "If you eat it, only then will you know the taste of it."
