BUCYRUS, Kan. (AP) - It could be months before an eastern Kansas business finds out if one of its peaches has broken a world record.

KSHB-TV (https://bit.ly/2cbcDqA ) reports a peach weighing 763.39 grams — about 2 pounds — was picked Aug. 24 at Tubby Fruits Peach Orchard in Bucyrus. The current world record of 725 grams was set in 2002.

Two certified scientists from the Johnson County Extension office weighed the peach using a verified scale provided by the USDA. The process was documented with both videos and photos.

The Lady Nancy’s peach had to be eaten as proof that the fruit wasn’t altered to skew the results.

Once documentation is submitted, Guinness World Records says it could take up to 12 weeks for it to determine if the peach sets a new record.
