It may be fun to grow BIG fruit. But how do you sell it? A lot of fruit like avocado and dragon fruit is sold by the piece and others like apples and navel oranges are sold by the pound. How would this be sold?

A family from Moanalua (Honolulu), Hawaii is claiming their tree produced a world record-setting fruit. The Nishimura family says their tree created a massive jabong, or pomelo.
According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the heaviest pomelo weighed 10 pounds 11.3 ounces. It was grown by the Kumamoto Prefectural Yatsushiro Agricultural High School in Yatsushiro, Japan in 2014.

“The record is like 10 pounds, so this beats it by two pounds,” Kaito Nishimura said. “My grandpa actually got the tree and he said this is the biggest one he's seen in his life,” Nishimura added.
The family isn't exactly sure what they're gonna do with the 12-pound fruit. According to hawaiinewsnow.comm they'll need to get the weight verified by world record officials to get it in the books.
