The Guinness Book of World Records has certified a 3.5-kilo mango from the Philippines to be the world's biggest mango. It has a length of 30 centimeters and a diameter of 50 centimeters and comes from Florida Keitt variety. It surpassed the 2.4-kilo mango from Canada. The world's biggest mango is a product of the couple Engr. Sergio B. Bodiongan and Mrs. Ma. Socorro M. Bodiongan from Iligan City.

The said mango was displayed at the Sundayag 2009 Festival in Cagayan de Oro City and won in the "PINAKA" contest as the largest and heaviest among the other crops displayed.

This only proves that the Philippines could grow humongous mangoes. This is the first time the Philippines breaks a record for the fruits category in the Guinness Book of World Records.
