Man grows extra-lucky 63-leaf clover

By Around the Web

(UPI) – A Japanese man borrowed some of the luck of the Irish and broke a Guinness World Record by growing a 63-leaf clover. Yoshiharu Watanabe, 45, started cross-pollinating clovers at his Nasushiobara home in 2012 with an aim toward breaking the world record.

“Since the number of leaves has increased year by year, I have been aiming for the Guinness World Records title ever since,” he told Guinness World Records.

Watanabe said he used a combination of letting his clover patches pollinate naturally and hand-pollinating those with the most leaves. He said his methods weren’t always successful.
