Lucia Freitas did not want to believe it. Among the sweet potatoes she was pulling out of the ground during Saturday afternoon, one of them turned out to be surprisingly large and heavy.
Rushing to weigh it, she was even more surprised by the 20 kg mark on the scale.
“My mother, who has been planting potatoes for many years, told me she has never seen one of this size and weight,” she told JM.
In the form of thanks, Lucia Freitas took the giant potato this morning to the Missionary College, for marking this Sunday the World Mission Day. She did so gratefully for the find.
