queenszucchini.jpgOne amateur Queens farmer has found herself standing in the shadows of a 6-foot-tall zucchini! The Daily News reports on Apollonia Castitlione's green thumb, and says she only used fertilizer and water to grow the massive fruit. She told the paper, "I've had my vegetable garden for 26 years, but I never saw anything so spectacular"...and it's still growing! At this rate, it could take out the world record holder, a 7-foot, 10-inch zucchini from India. Once it stops growing, Castitlione doesn't want to eat the fruits of her labor, saying "it's getting hard, so wouldn't be good to eat anymore," but she will save the seeds for next year.
