Miniature Avocados now in store!

Friday 23rd March, 2018

It’s the fruit sensation that’s graced millions of Instagram feeds and quickly become a breakfast staple. Now for a limited time only, customers will be able to enjoy small, snack–sized avocados, as well as regular-sized varieties that they know and love.

Available in packs of six, the fruit – which are the size of an egg – will be sold in recyclable egg style boxes to prevent them from getting spoiled.

Smaller than the standard avocado, these egg size avocados were first brought to market as a method of tackling food waste. Growers have worked hard so that these diminutive eggs are of the same high quality as their larger counterparts. The rare, mini avocados or Zilla Eggs are about a third of the size of regular avocados.

Fresh produce buyer Alison O’Doherty said:“These Zilla Eggs are a brilliant way to offer customers great tasting, high quality avocados which are perfect for customers who want to snack, without the usual fuss or worry of wasting the other half of the avocado. And it also helps producers who are able to sell even more of their avocado crop.”

In recent years the popularity of avocados has overtaken the demand for more established favourites, with demand soaring year and year.

The size and delicate skin, which can be peeled away by hand, makes these miniature avocados ideal snacking foods, and a perfect addition to a packed lunch box
