Hawaii Woman Wants Record For Huge Avocado
A woman from Hawaii is waiting to hear back from Guinness World Records to find out if the massive avocado she snagged is the world's largest.
Pamela Wang of the Big Island found the 2.3-kilogram avocado on Sunday on a walk, the West Hawaii Today newspaper reports.
"I see avocados every day, and I pick up avocados every day, but this one, it was hard to miss," Wang said.
"It was as big as my head."
She met up with friends and showed them the enormous avocado. Wang's friends began making inquiries online, uncovering information that indicated that the avocado might just be the largest on record.
Wang has submitted an application to Guinness and expects to hear back within two months.
Wang said she found the avocado under a tree that hangs over a street. Anything overhanging or dropped outside a private property line is free for anyone to claim.
