New Recipe: Baker finds 9 inch lemon that weighs 4lb and is bigger than her baby’s head

A BAKER had a freakish slice of luck — when she stumbled across a 9in lemon bigger than her baby’s head.

Mum-of-three Tammy Warren, 38, spotted the 4lb citric whopper at a fruit and veg stall.

She snapped it up for a fiver and plans to make a couple of extra-refreshing drizzle cakes with it — and “lots of gin and tonics”.

Waxing lyrical, Tammy said: “It’s the biggest lemon I’ve ever seen in my life, I thought it would make a great cake.

“It’s bigger than [my baby] Sebastian’s head.

“In this case, when life gives you lemons, I’ll be making a couple of lemon drizzle cakes, I’ll have a go at limoncello, candied lemon peel and lots of gin and tonics.”

She spotted the zesty monster, 17 times the normal size, while out with her family at Lackham Farm in Chippenham, Wilts.

It was grown from the same tree that in 1989 produced a then-world record-sized lemon weighing 10lb with a girth of 31.5in.

Tammy, who lives in nearby Colerne, said: “It smells delicious.

“After you’ve held it your hands smell nice afterwards.

“We’re going to keep the seeds and grow our own.”

The fruit was picked from the tree in the grounds of Wiltshire College & University Centre’s campus at Lackham.

A spokesman said it “is pleased its super-sized lemons are still as popular and sought-after as ever.
