Ken Love, executive director of Hawaii Tropical Fruit Growers, weighed Wang’s avocado at a local grocery store.
"I've seen (avocados) longer and I've seen them fatter, but not both," said Love, who verified the fruit's weight at 5.23 pounds. "I think people have other ones that they don't weigh, but I think this one, it was way up there."
After verifying the weight, Wang and some friends went to a nearby cafe and enjoyed the fruit of their labor.
“It tasted excellent,” Wang said.
