We reported on experimental verification of quantum non-Gaussianity of a heralded single photon state with positive Wigner function [arXiv:1107.4305]. We unambiguously demonstrated that the generated state cannot be expressed as a mixture of Gaussian states. A sufficient information to witness the quantum non-Gaussianity was obtained from a standard photon anti-correlation measurement. Our approach is based on the non-Gaussianity criterion devised by Radim Filip and Ladislav Mišta [Phys. Rev. Lett. 106, 200401 (2011)].
