Giant avocados the size of melons hit UK stores
The jumbo avocado, of the ‘Linda’ variety, weighs up to 1.5kg which is more that the weight of two international Rugby balls!
A spokesperson for Waitrose, who will sell the monster, say the fruit stays on trees in Peru’s Chincha valley for up to one year to achieve its exceptional size.
The huge avocado, which sells for £4.99 is big enough to make a dish of guacamole or retro avocado and prawn starters to serve dinner party guests.
"She has a superb creamy texture with a very intense and slightly nutty avocado flavour."
