Israeli ‘Godzilla’ Wins Guinness World Record

A green bell pepper affectionately dubbed “Godzilla” by the children of Moshav Ein Yahav in the northern Arava desert has won a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.

The massive vegetable was grown by the town produce company, Yofi Shel Yerakot (Beauty of Vegetables) and weighs over a pound.  According to a report by Israel21c, the pepper drew the attention of packing-house workers because it was too large to fit through the sorting mechanism which boxes the produce for the Israeli market.

Farmers at the moshav also grow watermelons, melons, tomatoes, and other vegetables.  Approximately half are exported to Europe, with the other half being sold in Israel.

Godzilla has already passed muster with Guinness World Records officials and will be kept in a special display location at the Yofi Shel Yerakot main office while it is still fresh.

    Some day, Israel will feed the world. Everything tastes better there, too. You haven't lived until you're tasted a Jaffa orange! I will always remember the amazing strawberries that came from the green houses in Gush Katif (you know, the ones that the Palestinians smashed to pieces to use the metal frames for missile construction.) I've never had sweeter berries, or more bitter tears as when farmers were ripped off of their land.

    We turn the dessert into a lush garden, while they cut down our trees and try to bomb our fields into scorched earth.

    Now remind me, who'd the warmongers here?

    You have the darkness of the world represented by islam and their western hate Israel/Jews, crowd. Then you have the light of the world represented by Israel/Jews and their world wide supporters. The problem is the the darkness is huge and the light is minimal. Nothing the Jews can do will bring the darkness into the light! Sorry!!
