Avocado lovers may want to look at booking a trip to Hawaii, as it is now officially the home of the world's biggest avo!

The Guinness Book of World Records has crowned the avocado as the biggest on the planet after it weighed in at a whopping 2.55kgs (5.6lb).

The growers of the avocado were a family who live Kahului, Hawaii, USA.

When their avocado tree started unexpectedly producing large fruit, they decided to attempt the Guinness World Records title to show everyone that Hawaii produces amazing avocados - and it worked!

According to Maui News, the tree – which is 10 years old and stands at around 20 feet – produced an avocado that weighed roughly 2.46 kilos earlier in 2018.

The family reportedly used the avocado to make guacamole and plan to frame and hang their Guinness World Records certificate.
