1Kg Sized Avacados Hit Supermarket Shelves

UK supermarket chain Morrison’s have begun stocking 1kg sized avocados. The emu egg sized fruit can be portioned into 12 and is being sold for just £2. They measure up to 25cm in diameter and have a 70 percent flesh to 30 percent stone ratio.

Avocado expert at Morrisons, James Turner, said: “Despite their size, the avocados still have a distinctive creamy flavour and the skin still turns from green to black when they’re ripe, so you’ll always know when they’re ready to eat.”
