Pamela Wang from Kealakekua on Big Island was out walking when she saw the 5.2lb (2.35kg) fruit. She took the avocado home and weighed it.
A Hawaii woman is waiting to hear back from Guinness World Records to find out if the massive avocado she discovered is the world's largest.
"I've seen (avocados) longer and I've seen them fatter, but not both", Love said to West Hawaii Today. "It was as big as my head", she told the West Hawaii Today newspaper.
Wang submitted an application to Guinness World Records, which requires a photo of the fruit and a weigh-in on a legitimate scale witnessed by an expert.

Canada will open the tournament against Finland in a Group A preliminary-round game at Key Bank Center in Buffalo on December 26. He was voted the Canadian Junior Hockey League MVP in May. 5 in Buffalo, N.Y.
The avocado weighed 5.23 pounds. While Love said he assumes other people may have found similarly large avocados and simply just ate them instead of submitting their fruit to a record-breaking contest, he did think this one "was way up there".
The record for heaviest avocado now belongs to Gabriel Ramirez Nahim, who found an avocado weighing 4 pounds, 13.2 ounces in Venezuela in January 2009.
Ms Wang said her giant avocado came from a 40-year-old tree that overhangs a street she regularly walks along.
In this November 28, 2017 photo, Pamela Wang poses for a photo in Kealakekua, Hawaii, with an avocado she found while on a walk. "We had 10 people there and didn't even use up half of one half of the avocado".
