Hawaii grows an avocado the size of a newborn

The avocado, which has become one of the main ingredients of any dish and can be consumed at any time of the day, has become one of the favorite fruit of thousands of people, in particular in the US.

Regularly, a very large avocado is usually the size of a hand's palm. A family of farmers who live in Hōlualoa, Hawaii, have become news because they say they grow the largest avocados in the world.

Kenji Fukumitsu and his family have been involved in the avocado business for 8 decades and, according to all accounts, they obtain all their fruits from a single tree that Kenji's older brother planted in 1941.

The peculiarity of this tree is that each of it's avocados weighs about 6 pounds (2.72 kg), practically the size and weight of a newborn baby. Despite their size, Kenji says the avocados have an excellent flavor.

In fact, a local doctor named Joy McElroy is doing everything possible to ensure that these avocados are recognized as the biggest in the world and in history by the Guinness Record.
