Avocado 'as big as my head' could be world record

Postado Dezembro 07, 2017

Instead of making a very large batch of avocado toast, Wang made a decision to show her discovery to a few friends, who immediately thought the avocado would be potentially record-breaking.

Pamela Wang of the Big Island found the 5-pound (2.3-kilogram) avocado Sunday on a walk, the West Hawaii Today newspaper reported.

"I've seen (avocados) longer and I've seen them fatter, but not both", Love said to West Hawaii Today.

In this November 28, 2017 photo, Pamela Wang poses for a photo in Kealakekua, Hawaii, with an avocado she found while on a walk.

Since Guinness requires an expert be present at the examination of an item before its submission to the group, the official weighing of Wang's avocado was witnessed by Ken Love, executive director of Hawaii Tropical Fruit Growers.

Ms Wang showed the huge fruit to her friends, who began making inquiries online and discovered it might be the largest on record. Daily 11 avocados have been known to grow to be several pounds, but the fruit found by Wang could be the heaviest ever recorded. "I think people have other ones that they don't weigh, but I think this one, it was way up there". It does, however, have one for the heaviest. It was a 4-pound, 13.2-ounce avocado from Caracas, Venezuala, submitted in 2009.

"It tasted excellent", Wang said. In Hawaii, fruit that overhangs or falls in a public place is free to claim.
