Giant vegetables: How did these fruit and veg get so big?

As an avocado the size of a baby is grown in Hawaii, we wanted to see how many other giant fruit and veg we could find
This is the world's heaviest avocado - weighing in at 5.6 pounds - the same as a small baby! It's bigger than an average 12-year-old's head! The record-breaking avocado is no more though - it apparently was turned into enough guacamole for 20 people. The Pokini family, who grew it in Hawaii, say they hope to harvest more giant avocados in December. Bravocado!
