Petah Tikva resident Yitzhak Yazdanpana has set the new world record for growing the longest cucumber. Working out of his home garden, Yazdanpana grew a three-foot, ten-inch long cucumber (about 117 cm). He said he didn't use any chemical fertilizers.
Yazdantana said on Tuesday that he hopes the cucumber will be entered into the Guinness Book of World Records.
