Coffin Bay hobby farmer sets Australian record with 1-kg elephant garlic

A hobby farmer from Coffin Bay on South Australia's Eyre Peninsula is now the official record holder for the biggest elephant garlic grown in Australia. Jonathon Thompson's elephant garlic weighed in at 1,092 grams, which is about 100 grams off the world record.

Thompson's garlic was officially recorded by the Australian Giant Pumpkin and Vegetable Supporters Group. The AGPVS is the certifying body that recognises and keeps track of Australian vegetable and fruit records which include weight, length, circumference and produce per plant.

While carrots and pumpkins are popular record holders, elephant garlic is not huge in the Australian record books.
