World Record Vegetables - Matanuska Valley/Palmer

Short Growing Season? No problem when you have almost 20 hours of daylight!! Palmer is home to several world records for biggest vegetables - including a giant cabbage (127 pounds), a carrot (18.99 pounds), a zucchini (29.65 pounds) and a beet root (42.75 pounds). This sculpture in downtown shows you just what that big a veggie actually looks like - pretty darn amazing!
