Hawaii woman's avocado might make Guinness World Records

Pamela Wang may have just stumbled across a world record-breaking avocado.

Pamela Wang from Kealakekua on Big Island was out walking when she saw the 5.2lb (2.35kg) fruit.

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.

"I've seen (avocados) longer and I've seen them fatter, but not both", said Love, who verified the fruit's weight at 5.23 pounds. "It was as big as my head", she told the West Hawaii Today newspaper.

The country was also banned from worldwide competitions by FIFA over alleged interference in the national football association. The ban was imposed in October 2015, leaving Kuwait unable to play its World Cup qualifiers.

The record for heaviest avocado now belongs to Gabriel Ramirez Nahim, who found an avocado weighing 4 pounds, 13.2 ounces in Venezuela in January 2009.

Wang submitted an application to Guinness and expects to here back within two months.

Ms Wang said her giant avocado came from a 40-year-old tree that overhangs a street she regularly walks along. "I think people have other ones that they don't weigh, but I think this one, it was way up there". In Hawaii, fruit that overhangs or falls in a public place is free to claim. In the meantime, after the fruit's weigh-in, she and her friends ate the avocado at a local cafe. Daily 11 avocados have been known to grow to be several pounds, but the fruit found by Wang could be the heaviest ever recorded. "We had 10 people there and didn't even use up half of one half of the avocado".
