Woman Finds 5 Pound Avocado That May Be A Guinness World Record

A woman who happened to come across a 5 pound avocado on her morning walk may be in line for a Guinness World Record.

Hawaii resident Pamela Bryant Wang discovered the massive fruit while on a Sunday walk. The avocado was underneath a tree that hung over a street, and free for anyone to take.

“I see avocados every day, and I pick up avocados every day, but this one… it was hard to miss,” she told West Hawaii Today. After taking it home and showing to some friends, she was convinced to have the avocado weighed and submitted to Guinness World Records to see if hers broke the record for heaviest avocado.

Currently, that number is set at 4 pounds and 13.2 ounces. Wang’s find checked in at 5.23 pounds, which is more than enough for her to claim the title. Guinness will verify if her results are valid or not within a couple of months.

As for the avocado, after being officially measured and weighed, half of it was enjoyed by Wang and her friends, who commented that it was “very good.” The rest was given to a local restaurant for their customers to enjoy.
