Martinique farmer digs up massive 68 pound yam

A farmer in Martinique has harvested a massive 31 kilo (68.2lb) yam from his garden.

Thierry Degras harvested the “Portuguese” yam from his garden in the Fond Coulisse neighborhood at Saint-Esprit on Sunday January 21, Martinique 1ere reports.

Degras reportedly spent more than three hours delicately removing the yam from the ground without scratches.

Martinique 1ere reports that his friend, Fély Jougon, also made a massive harvest earlier this month, digging up a yam weighing 29 kilos (63.8 pounds) on January 2.

The friends say the plan to use their unusual harvest to prepare a big meal so relatives and friends can taste this offering.
