When Wang found the giant avocados, she approached the local farmers who went to examine it and tell her what it was about. Then she uploaded photos on her Facebook account, where some friends urged her to look at the Guinness record.

Wang tries to break the record of “heavier” avocados, as there is no “bigger” category. The current holder of the “heaviest” avocado is Gabriel Ramirez Namim, of Venezuela, who had discovered an avocado of 1.8kg in 2009.
