“Melon snake, Armenian cucumber” in Derbyshire has grown the world’s longest vegetable
“Power of prayer” — an elderly resident of the English County of Derbyshire explains how he managed to grow a cucumber to a size exceeding the Guinness Book record.
75-year-old Raghbir Singh Sanger raised vegetable length 51 in (129,5 cm) in the greenhouse. The growth process is still not finished — the fetus continues to grow in length and in width.
The current record-holder of the Guinness Book — the cucumber length 107 cm, grown in Wales in 2011.
However, the expert in the field of growing giant vegetables Peter Glazebrook said that most likely it is the Armenian cucumber (Cucumis meloflexuosus), also called snake melon, and not the common cucumber (Cucumis sativus), although both of them belong to the family Cucurbitaceae.

“We have exhibitions already brought such samples, but these were rejected, says Glazebrook. — Although. undoubtedly, this one of a kind — handsome”.
In the Guinness Book of records now contain only cucumbers of ordinary records in the category of Armenian cucumbers are not registered. However, according to the representative of Guinness World Records, anyone can submit an application for the creation of a new category via the publisher’s website.
