The world’s largest cherry is 33 grams — less than 1-1/4 ounces — which is actually not very large

Top of the tree: Italian farmers grow world’s biggest ever cherry

Lorenzo Tondo at The Guardian:

Italian farmers have grown the world’s largest cherry, shattering the record with a mammoth 33g fruit.

The carmen cherry was grown by Alberto and Giuseppe Rosso from Pecetto Torinese, about four miles south-east of Turin, in Piedmont, a town renowned for the production of cherries. The Rosso family have been growing cherries for more than a century.

I call shenanigans for use of the word “mammoth” here.
