Earlier this week, ITV News Anglia reported on the huge pumpkin seed sold for £170

Well, Neil MacGregor from Chelmsford has got in touch with his own version - this time, a giant peach.

This picture shows the fruit he picked from his tree two years ago. He admits it may not be a record breaker but at 1lb 4oz, it's still quite impressive.

All the more so, because the tree was grown from a peach pit that came from a punnet of fruit he bought in Chelmsford market 26 years ago...clearly a good investment.

And most importantly, Neil says the giant peach tasted delicious.
