Every year, untold numbers of amateur chefs wind up in emergency rooms with slash and puncture wounds, victims of the slippery-pitted scourge increasingly known in the medical community as “avocado hand.” But what if there was a way to enjoy an avocado’s fatty, creamy goodness at home without needing to wield a knife at all?
A woman in Hawaii has contacted Guinness World Records to see if she may have the world’s heaviest avocado.

The avocado clocked in at a whopping 5 pounds, 3.68 ounces.
