Dairy Queen now owns the world record for the largest fruit sculpture ever after hiring an artist to build a 10-foot-tall tree.

The restaurant chain sponsored the fruit sculpture in Calgary, Alberta, Canada earlier this month as part of a promotional event for its Orange Julius smoothies.

Sculptor Shawn Feeney used 1,200 pieces of pineapples, oranges, strawberries, peaches and mangos to build the tree.

Guinness World Record officials were present to certify the record.

The Dairy Queen chain based in Minneapolis is part of Warren Buffett's Omaha, Neb.-based Berkshire Hathaway conglomerate.
