The world’s fascination with smashed avocado doesn’t look like fading any time soon - no matter how expensive avocados tend to be.
However one grower in the UK has invented a ‘super avocado’ which they claim leaves all others in its wake in terms of size, taste and value for money.
Available at popular UK supermarket Morrisons, the whopping fruit weighs an unbelievable 1kg, measures 25cm in diameter and can serve up 12 portions. That’s a lot of smashed avocado!
And while some critics might think the mega av would be all stone inside, the supermarket promises that it has a 70% flesh to 30% stone ratio.
And the best part? They cost just over $3. Insane!
Introducing the Mega Avocado!
Avocado Expert at Morrisons, James Turner, told Metro: ‘Despite their size, these avocados still have a distinctive creamy flavour. ‘The skin turns from green to black when they’re ripe, so you’ll always know when they’re ready to eat. ‘Because avocados are so popular right now, we think these will fly off the shelves.’
While there’s no official word on whether the super fruit will be coming to Australia, we’ve heard whispers of a similar avocado coming on the market in Australia very soon. Are you excited?!
