Gardener grows a nearly 20-pound onion that may have broken world record

This onion made him cry tears of joy.

A gardener in England brought a behemoth nearly 20-pound onion to a flower show in North Yorkshire — and organizers believe the behemoth vegetable may set a world record.

Gareth Griffin’s voluminous veggie — which weighed in at 19.77 pounds — beat out the past record of 18.68 that was set in 2014.

Organizers of the Harrogate Autumn Flower Show, which runs until Sunday at Newby Hall & Gardens, posted the onion on its Instagram page, with a disclaimer stating the feat is still pending Guinness World Records’ review.

“I wonder how many onion rings you could make from this?” one cheeky Instagrammer mused.

Another quipped: “I think I would cry if I saw it!”

The prized onion can be found on display at the show’s Incredible Edible Pavilion among other huge vegetables such as a cabbage, cucumber and carrot.
