New Canadian Record Cucumber

My brother Richard Nieuwenhoff weighed one of his cucumbers today and it's a new Canadian Record (for now). Here is a picture of it on the scale and a print-out receipt from the place he got it weighed. 16.71 Pounds. Congratulations!

I will ask him about how long it was. BTW, he said the seed package said Cornish Giant long and heavy cucumber 2013.

Those seeds are from David Thomas, who originally got them from Cobbs, the WR holder back then. I grow the same strain. We both grow the same seeds for both the long and heavy categories.
