WEST HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

The world’s largest manufactured potato made its way to Connecticut on Monday.

The giant potato weighs 12,000 pounds and is 12 feet wide, and is being brought around the country with The Famous Idaho Potato Tour.

On Monday, the potato made a stop in West Hartford at the Mooyah Burgers on North Main Street.

It would take two years and nine months to bake the potato, if you found an oven big enough.

The potato would also make more than one million average sized French fries.
