La Romaine couple reap 20-inch ochro

A La Romaine couple who reaped ochroes 20 inches long are hoping to make it into the Guinness World Book of Records.

Parbatee and Harold Boodoo of Temple Street Duncan Village, San Fernando, planted the deer horn ochroes in their backyard garden six weeks ago but they never imagined that it would grow unusually long.

Ochroes usually grow to six to seven inches but on Sunday when Parbatee ventured to cut ochroes for a meal of crab and callaloo, she realized that one of the trees had an unusual bountiful harvest.
