Come see the World’s Biggest Potato!
The “largest potato on wheels” makes its way across the nation in honor of the Idaho Potato Commission’s 75th Anniversary and in support of Meals on Wheels Association of America.
Just how big is this potato?
- The “Great Big Idaho Potato” — the largest potato on wheels — is 28 feet long, 12 feet wide and 11.5 feet tall. It sits on a 48-foot long flatbed trailer. The project took about a year to complete.
- The potato weighs 6 tons (12,130 pounds).
- It’s made out of steel, plywood, foam and concrete.
- If mashed (and real), it would serve 30,325 people.
- It would take 10,000 years to grow a potato of this size.
