WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- It weighs as much as a small turkey, but this is a different Thanksgiving favorite.

West Lafayette gardener Angie Fisher says she pulled a 6.5 pound sweet potato from her garden just before the frost.

The photo was sent to us by Ron Fisher.

Allrecipes.com says a turkey that size could feed more than four people at Thanksgiving dinner.
