Record-breaking 9 kilo onion displayed at Harrogate Flower Show

A record-breaking giant onion weighing almost 9kg has been displayed at the Harrogate Autumn Flower Show in northern England.

The vegetable, owned by Gareth Griffin, weighs 8.97kg and was displayed at the flower show at Newby Hall and Gardens near Ripon in North Yorkshire.

Colossal cabbages, marrows, and beetroots were among the vegetables judged during the National English Honor Society, NEHS Giant Vegetable Competition at the flower show.


Paul Proud’s cabbage, parsnip, carrot, beetroot, and cucumber emerged triumphant in their respective categories.

Chris Parish took home a prize for his giant pumpkin, which weighed 102kg.


The Harrogate Flower Show runs twice a year, in April and September.

This autumn’s flower show featured The Blooms Of Deception, a display of floral art inspired by Agatha Christie’s tales of intrigue and suspense, as the show fell on the British author’s birthday.

The show takes place on Sept. 15-17 and up to 30,000 visitors are expected to attend.
