Behold the babycado: M&S launches mini avocado range

ThinkstockPhotos-503081670.jpg

Just when we thought our love of avocados was reaching saturation point, Marks and Spencer goes and launches a pack of teeny weeny avocado babies - literally.

The miniature fruits, which the supermarket giant is calling a UK 'first', are half the size of a normal avocado, perfect for single-toast portions and snacking. 

Yes, that means we no longer have to leave half an avocado to turn into that sad, helpless brown shade. 

They'll be sold in packs of five for £2, and the flavour is more concentrated than larger avocados which means we can expect a richer, sweeter and creamier taste. 

Big Avocado - meet baby Hass avocado.

Speaking about the fruit which is grown just outside of Malaga, Spain, M&S produce expert Sally Sharp says: “We’re excited to add the mini avocado to our ever-growing collection of baby fruits. Its smaller size makes it ever tastier than a normal avocado with a deliciously creamy texture. They are great for snacking or adding to salads as they can simply be cut in half rather than sliced".

“Experts advise a serving of half an avocado a day so these minis offer the ideal portion size without leaving half the fruit exposed to the air which can quickly go brown.”

Mini Hass avocadoes are available from now until April in M&S stores.
