Avozilla: Five Times The Size of A Regular Avocado, Now Available In Tesco

Tesco Ireland has revealed that giant avocados known as Avozillas are now available in stores across Ireland.

Priced at €4 the fruit is five times the size of a regular avocado.

Despite its size, the giant avocados are reportedly naturally produced and not genetically modified.

“This limited stock of Avozillas is exclusive to Tesco," said Ciaran Doyle, fresh food buyer, Tesco Ireland.

"They are extremely rare and come from just four trees grown by one of the world’s biggest suppliers of avocados in South Africa.

"Deliveries will be going into eighty of our stores across the country on Friday morning and will be available this weekend while stocks last.”

Seemingly, just four trees produce the Avozilla supply in the lush forest outside of Modjadjiskloof, Limpopo, South Africa.
