Picture of my holding my world record giant amaranth. This amaranth was listed in the 2009 Guinness Book of World Records as the world's tallest Amaranthus. The record broke the previous record of 15 feet 1 inch held by David Brenner. My record was later broken by a friend in New York, Jesse Eldrid, with a 27 feet 10 inch tall plant. I'm attempting to get my record back. I grew a 24 feet 4 inch plant in 2009; so I'm getting closer.
