While sharing the pictures of the orange on the microblogging site, Ritu wrote about how the orange grew at her friend’s farm in the city of Nagpur, Maharashtra. According to Malhotra’s tweet, the giant orange measured 24 inches in circumference and 8 inches in height. Further, the weight of the orange was 1.425kg as on 23rd November, 2020.

The orange attracted a lot of attention on social media in no time. While many people were left awestruck by the size of the orange, many also appreciated the quality of Nagpur oranges. A user also called it ‘Hulk of an orange’ because of its huge size. Some people compared it with another citrus fruit Chakotra, which is yellow in colour and looks like an orange but is comparatively bigger in size.
Here, take a look at some of the best replies to the tweet-

The orange just missed the chance of breaking the world record by a whisker. According to the Guinness World Records, the largest orange by circumference measured 25 inches. This record has been held by Patrick and Joanne Fielder in Fresno, California since 2nd January, 2006. However, this Nagpur orange is 24 inches, which made it miss the world record by just an inch.
