Pamela Wang may have just stumbled across a world record-breaking avocado.

Wang found the 5.23-pound avocado on her daily walk to pick up her newspaper in the city of Kealakekua, Hawaii.

“I see avocados every day and I pick up avocados every day, but this on -- it was hard to miss,” Wang said in an interview with West Hawaii Today.

The record for heaviest avocado currently belongs to Gabriel Ramirez Nahim, who found an avocado weighing 4 pounds, 13.2 ounces in Venezuela in January 2009.

Wang is waiting to hear back from Guinness to see if she will be the new record holder for heaviest avocado.

“It tasted excellent,” Wang said. “The tree is very good. We had 10 people there and didn’t even use up half of one half of the avocado.”

Guacamole, anyone?
