Tesco Relaunch 'Avozilla' Avocado That Serves Up To 10 People

This week Tesco will relaunch the monster avocado which has been fittingly dubbed the 'AVOZILLA'.

The extremely rare South African version of the fruit will only be available for a few weeks but last year the supermarket sold out in a matter of days.

The sought-after avocado will be available to customers from tomorrow (27 August) but make sure you're feeling strong because one weighs in at 1.5kg - 10 times the size of a bog-standard avocado.

The extremely rare variety is grown from just a few trees in South Africa, and is available for only a few weeks each year, which seems to explain the sell-out speed.

Thanks to a great harvest in its native country, the AVOZILLA can contain up to 10 servings for the retail price of just £4, meaning it can feed a group for just 40p per head.

Tesco chilled salad and avocado buyer, Katalin Varnai, said: "Back by popular demand, the AVOZILLA is guaranteed to keep people talking year after year.

"The natural monster fruit is extremely rare and comes from just a relatively small number of trees grown by one of the world's biggest suppliers of avocados in South Africa.

"We know how much the UK likes avocados, so we consider ourselves extremely lucky to be able to offer this treat to our customers. We can't wait to see what deliciously green creations our nation of avocado lovers will rustle up!"

Over the years, various people have taken to social media to show off their fruity purchase.

In 2019, upon hearing the news of the comeback, one person wrote: "Guess who's gonna be queuing outside Tesco Saturday morning for her AVOZILLA."

Five years earlier, in 2013, someone else added: "Another Reason to Move to the UK - 'Avozilla'."
