  Longest cucumber-world record set by Alf Cobb

  Ray Davey, the giant vegetable co-ordinator and steward of the Flower, Fruit and Vegetable Marquee, said: "I know the crowd will enjoy the display. They just gasp when they come in here. It's always full of people."

  With this new 36.1 in (91.694 cm) cucumber, Alf Cobb beated his own previous record of 35.1in.

  In fact the cucumber was almost 7lb heavier than the earlier world record that was set by a fellow British grower, Mark Baggs, in 2005.

  Growers from around the world visit the annual event, which includes the giant fruit and vegetable competition as its highlight.   
   The world record cucumber is just one of the oversized exhibits at the giant vegetable contest taking place at the Bath and West Showground this weekend.

   Visitors of the National Amateur Gardening Show 2008 can also see the world's Largest marrow .
   
   Some 30,000 visitors are expected to attend the show which exhibits flowers, plants and gardens as well as offering attractions including a gun dog display.

  The largest cucumber plant covers an area of 56.7 m (610.31 ft) at the Epcot Science project at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, USA. The plant was measured in July 2006.
