A woman in Lithuania, Milda Ismailova, was pleasantly surprised when she unearthed a mega potato in her garden weighing 856 grams.

“As always, I was growing potatoes without fertilisers, and I only changed the variety which probably led to a better harvest this year,” she said.

She has already tried making the iconic Cepelinai potato dumplings this year. “The dish came out perfect,” she said.
