Douglas Smith, a 43-year-old man from Britain created a world record by growing 839 cherry tomatoes on a single stem.


Smith is an IT manager by profession. He had grown the tomato plant directly from seed and spent time on his work.

As per reports, Smith sowed tomatoes in the month of March.

To grow the world record-worthy tomatoes, he kept the plant in the greenhouse and spent nearly 3-4 hours a week on his plant.


When the time for plucking arrived,  he called the local police, to be verified for Guinness World Records.

He plucked a total of 839 tomatoes from a stem of a tomato plant on his farm.

Smith broke the previous record of 448 tomatoes from a single stem held by Graham Tanter.
