A Hawke's Bay couple is claiming they've grown the biggest feijoas in the country.
Roger Corbett and his partner Julie have two feijoa trees in Havelock North, which have begun to produce record-breaking fruit.
Mr Corbett has tended the trees for the past two years.
"After I cut the trees back and fed them two to three bags of sheep poo, the fruit just kept getting bigger and bigger," Mr Corbett said.

The Bay Of Plenty New Zealand Tree Croppers previously claimed the biggest feijoa, at 233 grams.
Roger and Julie's feijoas dwarf this in comparison with fruit weighing over 250 grams.
"The biggest feijoa we have weighed was 272grams but unfortunately we were so gobsmacked that we ate it before thinking to get a photo," Mr Corbett said.
Feijoa season is now in full force, so expect to see the South American native fruit in abundance.
Even if you don't have your own tree, friends and family will likely try fob their excess 'joeys' off on to you.
The season generally runs from March to late June.
