Carrot 27b

Famous for being the world’s largest carrot.
Estimated to be over 18 feet long.
And it’s still growing.
Planted and grown by Mrs. Hogmanny-Hog-Mahomm, who is believed to have sung to it for over an hour every day, in its own language (Karrotsch).
Because she speaks over 300 vegetable languages, she has actually translated the full Harry Potter series into Karrotsch. Very few people know this. She read it to Carrot 27b when it was still small.

The world’s second largest carrot is Godiva the Magnificent, grown by Thorborg Vendilkráka, arch rival of Mrs. Hogmanny Hog-Mahomm. At 17 feet tall, Godiva the Magnificent poses a direct threat to World’s Largest status of carrot 27b.

Thorborg Vendilkráka takes a very different approach to carrot husbandry. He keeps Godiva the Magnificent above ground, in a CCV (Customised Carrot Vestibule). At night, Godiva the Magnificent is taken out of the CCV and sleeps bunk bed above Thorborg.

Godiva the Magnificent gets three daily massages and is taken for a walk every day after feeding time.

The World Carrot Measurement Society (WCMS) has raised questions about the technical legality of using a CCV, but to date its use has been allowed. Thorborg Vendilkráka says there’s nothing wrong with using it and that it gives Godiva the Magnificent no additional advantages.
