Corn cob
WR: 36.25in - Bernard Lavery - United Kingdom - 1994

Not sure if this one was measured correctly. I think he included the stalk. The correct way to measure is from the base of the cob to the tip, so no stock.
There are (or at least were) yearly competitions for longest corn cobs in Mexico. Generally speaking 24 inches for just the cob is very good.

yeah I read that it seems massive, I'd like to see a photo of the world record. Do they have weight category? I'm surprised they don't.

There is no weight category to my knowledge.
