Your going to need a lot of cream for this gigantic strawberry...<br />
<br />
Those who want to get into the spirit of Wimbledon in a big way this year can now grow their own giant strawberries - the size of a tennis ball.<br />
<br />
Gigantella Maxim produces massive strawberries that can fill the palm of a hand like an apple and are apparently delicious with fresh cream.<br />
<br />
Gardening company Bakker are now selling the plants so people can get their own mega fruity fix this summer.<br />
<br />
It has taken ten years of cross-pollinating the largest varieties of strawberry to produce a bigger and bigger fruit until experts finally had a product about six times the size of a normal strawberry.<br />
<br />
You can buy the plants online for £10 for a pack of 25  - but you will need a big greenhouse to grow them in.
