Avocados Three Times The Regular Size Go On Sale In Australia
Everyone knows Aussies love avocados. Whether it be in smashed form on buttery toast during brunch, mashed together with some sweet chilli sauce and lime in some guacamole or even blended in a #healthysmoothie - they are delicious every way.
But they're certainly not cheap and sometimes they're way too small for the price.
Well, hold onto your socks because a monster avocado, nicknamed the Avozilla, has debuted in Australia and they're incredible.
WA Fresh Delivered has posted on Facebook, showing just how big they are compared to normal avos and they're about three times the average size.
"New to WA Fresh Delivered, these massive avocados which are grown on a Queensland-based family farm can grow up to five times the size of a typical variety.
"The Avozilla hasn't sacrificed flavour though, retaining the signature buttery taste of regular sized avocados.
"The season is very short and we only have a few available so if you're making a mega-guacamole or need to smash avo on toast for the whole street add one to your cart while they're still available."
Now it can't be all fun and games and there has to be a catch and sadly there is with these bad boys.
One avozilla will set you back $14 - which is certainly a steep price considering a standard one costs around $2.50.
But a double figure price for avocados isn't a strange sight in New Zealand, where prices have soared to $10 in some regions.
The sheer cost of large avocados has even seen some restaurants stop serving guacamole and other avo delicacies because they're too goddamn expensive to produce.
Owner of Auckland Mexican restaurant La Fuente, Edmundo Farrera, has told the New Zealand Herald: "We talked about it with the chef and he said 'I'm conscious of this, you keep an eye on it and basically let me know when it's the time we have to take it off the menu'.
A report featured in Bloomberg last month showed avocado prices have spiked 34 percent in Mexico, the highest in nearly a decade.
Mexico is the largest grower of the green stuff in the world by far, producing 1.52 million tonnes a year. By comparison, the Dominican Republic is the second largest and they produce 420,000 tonnes yearly.
So get your hands on the avozilla if you want to be the coolest person at your party.
