A giant strawberry grown by a farmer in Israel has been declared the heaviest ever grown, weighing in at 10 ounces. The big berry has a circumference of 13 inches and is seven inches long. The proud farmer says a cold winter in Israel last year allowed more time for the fruit to grow before it ripened. Guinness says the fruit is about five times the size of an average berry and it also smashes the previous record for heaviest strawberry which was set in 2015.
