- It took months for the avocado to get its certification.
- The family produced something bigger previously, but was not able to certify it.
- Previous record-holder weighed 5.5 pounds.
Another avocado from Hawaii has set the record for the world’s heaviest and can produce 20 servings of guacamole. Weighing 5.6 pounds, the massive fruit has landed a place at the Guinness Book of World Records.
The record-holder was harvested by the Pokini family of Kula in Maui, Hawaii. Couple Mark and Juliane Pokini, along with their son Loihi, planted the tree more than 10 years ago in their homestead in Waiohuli.
The avocado looks bigger than Loihi Pokini’s head.
They applied for the record in December 2018. It took months for the family to have the avocado certified.
They had to consult with a certified horticulturalist, do lots of paperwork, weigh the fruit using a certified scale, and then submit pictures and video as evidence, along with other required documents.
“This avo was about the size of my 12-year-old son’s head,” Mark Pokini told CNN.
This was not the first time that the family attempted to grow a record-holding avocado. In the first part of 2018, they were able to produce one weighing 5.7 pounds but they were not able to get proper verification.
This serves as a lesson for them, which helped greatly on their second attempt.
After getting the avocado’s size documented, the family used it to make guacamole, with portions enough for 20 people. Usually, 10 avocados are needed to make enough for that number of people.
The Pokini family plans to top their own record and grow bigger avocados, with harvest season just right around the corner this December.
The previous record holder was a 5.5 pounder grown by Felicidad Pasalo of Hilo, Hawaii. Other large avocados were also grown last year in other parts of the world. Some which weighed under 4 pounds were grown in Australia. They were nicknamed “Avozillas” because they were five times bigger than the regular-size avocado.
