A baker has gone on a citrus cooking spree after discovering a nine-inch lemon that weighs almost 1.8 kg.

Tammy Warren spotted the yellow joker – the largest she’s ever seen – in Wiltshire last week and believes the fruit that dwarfs her baby’s head is about 17 times the size of a standard lemon.

And when life gave her a huge lemon, Tammy made a concoction of baking and cocktail treats.

The mother of three bought the fruit for £ 5 and set about making a lemon and blueberry cake, lemon cupcakes, lemon cake pops and a lemon drip bread.

Tammy, 38, then turned her hand to lemon syrup, lemon jam, fresh lemonade, lemon curd, candied lemon peel and frozen lemon segments for ‘lots of gin and tonic’.

There were still remnants of meat and shells from which she made a lemon chicken dinner before holding the seeds to plant.

Explaining that she originally saw the mutant lemon at a fruit and vegetable stall at Lackham Farm, Chippenham, on Saturday 19 March, Tammy from nearby Colerne said: ‘It’s the biggest lemon I’ve ever seen in my life, I thought. it would be a great cake.

‘In this case, when life gives you lemons, I made cakes, candied lemon peel, lemonade and will enjoy lots of gin and tonics.’

The lemon is said to have been grown from a tree that previously created a world-record-breaking fruit in the late 1980s.

Tammy, who runs Tammy Warren – Bespoke Celebration Cakes, visited the farm with MoD worker’s husband Stuart Warren, 36, and children Hannah, 15, Evelyn, three and one-year-old Sebastian.

After seeing animals for a lamb weekend, the family wandered to a nearby stall selling fruit and vegetables – this is where Tammy saw the monster fruit.

It was grown on the grounds of Wiltshire College & University Center’s Lackham campus and comes from the same tree that produced a world record size lemon back in 1989.

This fruit was almost three times larger than its distant relative, weighing about 4.8 kg with a circumference of 80 cm.
