I suggest you do a google search for
Farmer Says He Grows World's Longest Green Chile

since we are not allowed to post url.

Sweet and mild or hot and spicy, New Mexico chile farmers grow peppers for all taste buds.
But one man in Hatch says the size of his peppers are breaking world records.
"See this one here's 13, 14 inches," said Jim Lytle, as he picked fresh peppers from his 100-acre chile field. "I had one 17 inches."
Lytle said he knew he grew the world's longest chile the moment he laid eyes on the enormously long peppers.
"Yippee! I was really happy we had a new record to do it with. And then I got to looking in the field and found out that we had a lot more," Lytle said.
The unusually large length does not affect the taste or quality of the product, he said. Instead, it simply adds eye appeal for customers, Lytle said.
"That's one big chile," said a man purchasing the peppers at a nearby store.
One measures about 15.5 inches from top of the stem to the bottom, breaking the current record of 13 inches set by Lytle's mother in 1988.
