Woman Digs Up 20 KG Potato

Lúcia Freitas from Estreito de Câmara de Lobos could not believe her eyes when she pulled a massive sweet potato out of the ground last weekend. Even more surprising was that the potato weighed a staggering 20 kg.

On talking to reporters, Lúcia said that her mother had been planting sweet potatoes for years and she had never seen one of this size or weight.

The potato was later taken to the Missionary College for formal identification and weighing.
