Japan’s Hokuto apples, a hybrid of the Fuji and Mutsu varieties, are
known for their large average size so it’s not surprising that a
representative of this variety dropped into the Guinness World Records
for being the world’s heaviest apple.
Discovered by apple farmer Chisato Iwasaki of Hirosaki City, Japan, on
October 24th of 2005, the choice Hokuto apple above tipped the scales at
1,849 grams (about 4 lbs 1 oz).
