We here at Guacamoley were probably more excited than most to hear the story of Pamela Wang, a Hawaii resident who stepped out to get her paper one Sunday morning and stumbled upon the king of all avocados.
I see avocados every day and I pick up avocados every day, but this one... it was hard to miss. It was as big as my head.
Wang submitted an application to Guinness World Records and expects to hear back in two months if the fruit's recorded 5.23 pounds makes it one for the record books.

Remember that guy who traded up from a paperclip to a house? This cuts out every step in between — Straight avocado ----> house trade.— Martin Worthington (@thegoldenspike) December 6, 2017
Boomers get their avocados just handed to them and millenials have to work hard to earn our avocados and now we can't afford to buy houses. 🥑🏡— Fava Bean (@Fava) December 5, 2017
