After their application was accepted, the Pokinis had had to send in evidence that they beat the record. ‘For us it was having experts and witnesses available at the time of weighing the avocado along with a certified scale. We also had to have everyone fill out a witness statement along with videotaping,’ Juliane said, adding that they then had to wait another three months before finally earning the coveted title. ‘This avo was about the size of my 12-year-old son’s head,’ she said. The Pokinis ultimately used their prized fruit to make guacamole. They said they are going to continue trying to grow more massive avocados in the future.
