"Seguin reclaims title as home of the world's largest pecan"

Thank heavens. I was worried.
The small town of Seguin has reclaimed its title as home of the world's largest pecan. Since the 1960's the world's largest pecan has been sitting on the city's courthouse lawn. "It's been a focal point in the community right here in the heart of Seguin, ", said City Manger Doug Faseler.

Seguin lost it's title to a town in Missouri several years ago, and the city leaders knew they had to do something. It took several months, but the The Texas Agricultural and Heritage Center built a new pecan.

"It weights 23 hundred pounds, it's 16 feet long, 8 feet in diameter," said Mel Grones with the Texas Agricultural and Heritage Center.

Feh. Who thinks of Missouri anyway when someone mentions pecans?
