<ul class="item">
                                <li class=""><a href="#">Apples</a></li>
                                <li class="active"><a href="#">Grapefruit and Durian</a></li>
                                <li class=""><a href="#">Bananas</a></li>

Based on the list above, I would like to use jquery to apply a red 1px border around the <li> where its anchors have values that have character length more than 10. In this case, a red border should appear around the "Grapefruit and Durian" item, while the other two items remain the same.

I tried to use something like this:
//    if ($('ul.item li a').children().length > 10) {
//        // do something
//        $('ul.item li').css("border", "3px double red");
//    }
    if ($('ul.item li').children().value.length > 10) {
        // do something
        $('ul.item li').css("border", "3px double red");
