Big, bigger, biggest ? or is it?

VIVIAN Pacey's unofficial title as Rockhampton's grower of the biggest pawpaw is under threat.

Last month the 79-year-old Rockhampton man attracted attention when a 3.6kg fruit, 25cm long and 19cm round almost made his tree collapse.

This week, however, former cattleman and Rockhampton resident George Robertson, 87, said his pawpaw could possibly rival Mr Pacey's.

It is about 15cm round, 35cm long and weighs more than 3kg. "Someone sent me seeds from Townsville and the tree grew but it only had one pawpaw.''

If you think you have grown a bigger vegetable, email The Morning Bulletin at tmbully @capnews.com.au or write to us at PO Box 397, Rockhampton,4700.
