Thorold has made it to the big leagues, and it's all thanks to Councillor Henry D'Angela's supersized zucchini.

As ThoroldToday was the first to report, D’Angela has grown a zucchini that measures 8 ft and 4.79 inches, or 2.56 metres.

During Thursday's broadcast of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, the late night host took the time to spotlight D'Angela's record-breaking vegetable.

D’Angela has sent in proof to the Guinness World Records organization, but he's still waiting to hear back from them.

Now that even Colbert is talking about the extra long zucchini, it shouldn't take long for the result to become certified.
