Tesco Ireland has launched mini sized avocados dubbed 'Zilla Eggs' which are now available in stores nationwide for a limited time only.
Priced at €3.50 for a half dozen, the fruit which is the size of an egg, will be sold in recyclable egg-style cartons, to prevent them from getting spoilt.
'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' Tesco said in a statement.
Zilla Smaller Than Avozilla
The rare, mini avocados or Zilla Eggs are about a third of the size of regular avocados and are 24 times smaller than the giant sized Avozilla avocado,
“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." Joe Manning, Tesco fresh produce category director, said.
"And it also helps producers who are able to sell even more of their avocado crop.”
The size and delicate skin on the Zilla Eggs, can be peeled away, mess free.
