From the Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), November 17, 1921, page 1:
Has Big Radish.
Abe Loucks brought to the News office this week, two radishes raised in his garden this year. The larger of the two measured 26 inches in length, 21 inches around the largest place, and weighed about 8 pounds. The other was about an inch longer, but only 11 inches around. It was not weighed.
