London, Sep 20 (ANI): A British grandmother may enter record books for growing the world's longest cucumber.
Clare Pearce's record breaking cucumber reached at least 47in in a straight line from top to bottom, and was about four inches longer if its curve was included in the measurement, reports the Telegraph.
The current world record for the longest cucumber was set almost two years ago by Frank Dimmock of Thame in Oxfordshire. His effort reached 41.25in.
Although Pearce's cucumber eventually decomposed she also has a second slightly smaller cucumber that is still longer than the current record at 42in.
Pearce, 78, has now invited Guinness World Record officials to examine the vegetable in the hope that it will be officially recognised as a new record. (ANI)
