Giant veg grower Kevin Fortey has teamed up with Vauxhall Motors to create the UK’s biggest fruit and veg stall.
The gargantuan groceries on display at RHS Garden Hyde Hall in Essex were transported from around the UK using Vauxhall’s smallest van, the Combo Cargo.
Proving that no job is too big for the van, the Combo Cargo transported a massive 800kg of produce.
The stall showcases awe-inspiring fruit and vegetables from all around the UK, from 4ft marrows, to mammoth 3ft pumpkins and even some world record-breaking beetroots, weighing in at 45lbs.
“The giant veg stall is our way of celebrating the hard work of giant veg growers and other small businesses around the UK,” said giant veg world record breaker Kevin.
“Transportation is key in the giant veg growing community. After growing these beauties for up to 10 months, you need to be able to get them from A to B safely and securely. But with the enhanced capabilities of small vans like the Combo Cargo you don’t necessarily need the biggest van to be able to get the job done.”
Patrick Fourniol, Marketing Director at Vauxhall Motors, added: “Vauxhall is delighted to support the diverse and creative small businesses across the UK.
“From plumbers and plasterers to more niche fields like giant vegetable growing, the capabilities and features of modern commercial vehicles have been designed to turbocharge sole traders and small businesses so they can meet customer demands, no matter the payload.”
