An Indian farmer in the UAE has set a Guinness World Record by distributing the largest number of curry tree saplings in Sharjah.
According to a media report, Sudheesh Guruvayoor from Kerala on Tuesday distributed 4,914 saplings of the organic curry tree.
He broke the previous record set by the Guru Nanak Darbar Gurudwara in Dubai which had distributed 2,083 saplings of three varieties of trees to students of Delhi Private School in March.
Gulf News reports that Guruvayoor, who had hit headlines with his enthusiasm and accomplishments in farming in the UAE, achieved the new feat as part of the World Environment Day celebrations in the country. The saplings from his own farm in Sharjah were distributed to the students of two campuses of the Sharjah Indian High School.
With five Limca Book of Records and other awards in his kitty, Guruvayoor said he had been growing curry tree saplings at his farm for almost three months for this dream project.
