Hawaii Woman Seeks Record For Huge Avocado

Wang submitted an application to Guinness World Records, which requires a photo of the fruit and a weigh-in on a legitimate scale witnessed by an expert.

Wang found the 5.23-pound avocado on her daily walk to pick up her newspaper in the city of Kealakekua, Hawaii.

Elizabeth Montoya, a spokeswoman for Guinness World Records, said the group doesn't have a largest avocado category, but it does keep records of the heaviest.

Hawaiian farmers hold titles for heaviest jackfruit at 76 pounds (34.5kg) and largest soursop (a flowering fruit) at 24 inches around (60cm) and 11.5 inches long (29cm), respectively.

"Smashed avocado" on toast has become a popular breakfast among young people in the West. Anything overhanging or dropped outside a private property line is free for anyone to claim.

Wang expects to find out if her avocado broke the world record within 2 months. Her next move was to the Pure Kona Green Market, where she met up with friends and showed the enormous avocado to community members.

"It tasted excellent", Wang said.

The local area has recorded several other heaviest fruit, Mr Love told West Hawaii Today. "We had 10 people there and didn't even use up half of one half of the avocado", she said.

Local farmers now hold world records for the heaviest jackfruit and soursop, a fruit that occurs in the American tropics, and a local farmer also once held the record for the heaviest mango, he said.
