Smith's harvest almost doubles the 448 grown on a single truss by Guinness World Record holder Graham Tranter in 2010.

Smith said he was careful to follow Guinness' rules when growing and harvesting his tomatoes, and evidence from the attempt is being submitted to the record-keeping organization for official recognition.
