A blueberry from Australia has secured its place in the Guinness World Records by bagging the title of being the heaviest blueberry ever grown. Weighing 20.4 grams (0.71 oz), the fruit is almost 70 times heavier than a commonly found wild blueberry, according to the Guinness World Records, which verifies this golf ball-sized blueberry to be the heaviest after confirming its size and weight. Take a look at the berry’s test in the video shared on the Guinness World Records’ Instagram handle:

The heaviest blueberry, weighing 20.40 g (0.71 oz), was grown by Brad Hocking, Marie-France Courtois, and Jessica Scalzo. The group planted the Eterna blueberry cultivar, which yields remarkably hard and huge fruit. The caption stated, “On November 13, 2023, in the morning, at Costa Farm in New South Wales, Australia, a record-breaking blueberry was picked.”

Reactions to the record-breaking achievement quickly emerged in the comments section. “I want to eat it,” a gourmet said. Another inquired as to whether the “lightest blubbery” existed. Something said, “That record is for nature,” in writing. “Is it sour or sweet?” inquired a blueberry enthusiast.

As per the Guinness World Records website, Brad Hocking was the first to notice that the size of the blueberry was “tracking really well”, only a few days ahead of the harvest. The moment he picked it up, Hocking realised that this blueberry had “something really special” about it. He added that “while the fruit is large, there’s absolutely no compromise on quality or flavour as would be expected when developing a premium variety blueberry.” The record-breaking blueberry took 12 months to grow.

The previous record for the heaviest blueberry was held by a 16.20-gram berry, cultivated in Western Australia in 2020
