Hawaii Woman Seeks Record For Huge Avocado

There's no doubt that Americans are obsessed with avocados.

Pamela Wang discovered the mammoth fruit on a morning walk.

From avocado toast to guacamole and even macaroni and cheese, there's pretty much no limit to how we use this creamy, versatile fruit.

A woman in Hawaii has contacted Guinness World Records to see if she may have the world's heaviest avocado. Wang said. "It was as big as my head".

Guinness's verification process requires the fruit to be photographed and weighed in the presence of an expert - in this case Ken Love, a farmer and head of the organisation Hawaii Tropical Fruit Growers.

"I see avocados every day and I pick up avocados every day, but this on - it was hard to miss", Wang said in an interview with West Hawaii Today.

She met up with friends and showed them the enormous avocado.

The avocado is not of the Hass variety, which is what grocery stores often carry.

In order to submit the avocado to Guinness World Records, Pam had to get someone to witness the weighing and measuring of the giant fruit.

So is Wang's fruit big enough to mash the competition?

Wang expects to find out if her avocado broke the world record within 2 months. "Our Records Management Team will need to review any evidence submitted by the applicant".

Ms Wang said her giant avocado came from a 40-year-old tree that overhangs a street she regularly walks along.

According to Guinness' website, the current heaviest avocado on record weighed 4.8 pounds. It's a different varietal called Daily 11 that's typically three times larger than the standard avocado.

"It tasted excellent. The tree is very good".
