Hawaii Woman Seeks Record For Huge Avocado

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.
