A gi­ant leap for av­o­cado

Daily Star - - WIRED -

GI­ANT av­o­ca­dos are go­ing on sale for the first time in the UK.

The fruit grown in Ar­gentina weighs be­tween

480g and 670g, up to three times larger than the av­er­age size.

Asda is sell­ing them for

£1.60 from Mon­day. Nasir Ahmed from the su­per­mar­ket said: “Last year, Asda cus­tomers ate their way through an as­ton­ish­ing 28mil­lion av­o­ca­dos.

“With the na­tion’s ap­petite for av­o­ca­dos con­tin­u­ing to grow, we’re ex­cited to be in­tro­duc­ing the big­gest avos on the mar­ket.

“We hope the na­tion con­tin­ues spread­ing, smash­ing and slic­ing as av­o­ca­dos con­tinue tak­ing the world by storm.”
