  The Guinness World Records' record for the longest line of fruits consists of 6,010 pieces of fruit and was achieved by Associazione Genitoris, " Dammi La Mano" (Italy) in Gabicce Mare, Italy on 14 August 2014. The line measured 455 m (1,492 ft 9.35 in) long and consisted entirely of peaches.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the
largest gathering of people dressed as fruits was achieved by 206 participants, in an event organised by Leukaemia Research (UK) at the O2 Arena in Greenwich, London, UK, on 27 September 2009. All 206 participants were dressed as bananas as part of the Sony Ericsson, Run to the Beat half marathon.
   
  
 The world record attempt was a highlight of Rider's 150th anniversary celebration, as a way to honor the university's founder and namesake, Andrew J. Rider, a cranberry farmer who introduced the cranberry to the queen of England. She later nicknamed him "The Cranberry King of New Jersey."

    The previous Guinness World records' world record for the Longest Line of Fruits was 6,010 peaches strung in Italy on August 14, 2014.

  In order to break the Guinness World Records' record, Rider had to string 6,011 cranberries. As part of the world record rules, every piece of fruit must touch the next one in the line.

   To make the world record attempt a reality, Rider received a generous donation of cranberries from alumna Judy Simons Church '80, owner and operator of Simons Berry Farm in Tabernacle, N.J., a 275-acre farm that produces about 650,000 pounds of cranberries per year.

  The 184-year-old farm is located not far from the cranberry farm originally owned and operated by Andrew J. Rider. Church, a boardmember of the American Cranberry Growers Association, said New Jersey is the third-largest cranberry producer in the country.

   In an effort to be environmentally conscious and meet additional World Record rules, the cranberries were strung on biodegradable thread.

  After the record attempt was determined successful, the university placed the string of cranberries on trees and bushes around campus so the wildlife could enjoy the "fruits of their labor."
