Would you believe that a single piece of mango can weight up to 2 kilos (4.4 lbs)? I thought that this was a hoax at first until I read a post published by the Department of Agriculture – Cagayan de Oro, Philippines last September 2009.
Mr. and Mrs. Sergio Bodiongan of Iligan City were able to produce the largest mango that the world has ever seen. Each piece of mango produced from their tree weighs an average of 2 kilos – extraordinary. This is not the amazing part yet; what’s astounding is that they were able to harvest the largest and heaviest mango ever. Weighing 3.5 kilos (7.7 lbs), they entered their priceless entry in the “Pinaka” (the most) contest during Sundayag 2009 (A showcase of the Best of Northern Mindanao featuring Agriculture, Trade, & Tourism destinations). This also prompted them to register their mango in the Guinness Book of World Records.
