A woman in Hawaii has discovered a giant avocado in her “farm”, a size that amazingly extraordinary for the standard size of the fruit.
According to local Hawaii newspaper report, Pamela Wang, a resident of Kealakekua, Hawaii said while on a walk over the weekend, found something miraculous: a 5.23-pound (2.37kg) avocado the size of her head.
Based on West Hawaii Today, Guinness World Records is now determining whether it’s the heaviest avocado ever.
Furthermore, the avocado type is not of the Hass variety, which is what grocery stores often carry. It’s a different varietal called Daily 11 that’s typically three times larger than the standard avocado, Science Alert reported.
Daily 11’s grow in fall and winter months and are not commercially available.
After she found her giant avocado, sWang immediately went to the Pure Kona Green Farmers Market to show it to the local farmers in their village.
As of now, Guinness doesn’t have a category for “largest avocado,” but it does have one for “heaviest,” the record Wang is trying to break.
The current record holder, Gabriel Ramirez Nahim of Venezuela, discovered a 4-pound (1.8kg) avocado in 2009.
If Guinness’ representatives and investigators confirms that Wangs’ avocado is legitimate, Wang could dethrone Nahim record.
It is not the first time Hawaii has provided large size fruits and crops. In fact, 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.
“I see avocados every day, and I pick up avocados every day, but this one … it was hard to miss,” Wang told West Hawaii Today.
