A few days ago, the Guinness World Records twitter account tweeted the following:
#OnThisDay in 2003 we confirmed a new record for the world's heaviest lemon, grown by farmer Aharon Shemoel on his farm in Kefar Zeitim, Israel. The mighty citrus fruit grew next to another huge lemon and weighed 5.265 kg (11 lb 9.7 oz) – heavier than an adult human's head! 😮🍋 pic.twitter.com/vfCmpKaODU

The record still stands to this day.
Interestingly enough, I have not (yet) seen the palestinians claiming the record for themselves, or accusing us of “cultural genocide.” Although surely they hold the record for the biggest case of sour grapes.
Update: I spoke too soon. Commenters to this Facebook post are claiming the record belongs to the palestinians.
