Woman in 'shock' over giant zucchini
Green-fingered Apollonia Castitlione grew the giant Long Italian zucchini during the warm summer months using nothing more than fertilizer, water and a little TLC.
"There's no secret, I guess it was just luck," said Castitlione, who lives in Glendale, Queens.

Let's introduce her to the Staten Island guy with the 2 giant cabbages. Oh boy, can you imagine the naughty vegetable jokes if those 2 got together?
